A normal day of the AG Bats of the BUND Region Hannover
The bat emergency telephone rings, people bring an injured bat, the vet immediately takes over the medical care. At the same time, a second team went out: A bat flew in an apartment and has to be rescued. The emergency telephone rings again, and the control center of the fire department announces that the animal rescue vehicle is approaching with a bat. The further care of our bat patients is provided by our veterinarian, and a nursing team helps to clean the sleeping places. At the same time in the bat center, the care of the patients, who are accommodated for the rehabilitation in the flight aviaries takes place. Another team takes over the flight training of the patients, who can soon be released again. But also repairs to the inventory are pending and will be processed quickly and reliably. Other emergency requests are received via the Internet, some need advice, others the contact to local bat experts who can help where help is needed - meanwhile we act as agents all over Germany and sometimes even internationally to find contact persons in bat protection, to ensure rapid help. Slowly the dusk comes. Another team is now on its way to return recovered bats back to freedom. While leaving the bat center with the bats for releasing, another team ist entering the bat center with our delivery of kitchen paper and new feeding bowls. And already the emergency phone rings, a new emergency, an animal has caught in a glue trap. While the animal is on its way to our vet, everything is already being prepared there for medical treatment. This is how it is day in, day out - we were able to help more than 400 bat patients in 2019. Occasionally there are events on the weekends where we inform people about bat conservation, and with participating in demonstrations against the use of pesticides or forest destructions we bring our protest to the streets. Also lectures by Dr. med. Keil are an ongoing part of our bat conservation work, and this year the fire brigade control center was additionally trained in three seminar units in order to be able to act quickly and adequately on bat emergency calls. Of course, the work in the field may not be missing, as well as the reporting of the bat data to the Upper and Lower Nature Conservation Authority, because they are an important contribution in bat protection.
We are with the animals - every day and voluntary!
