Bats are among the most strictly protected species in Germany and Europe. They may not be persecuted or killed. All wild animals, including bats, are born free and should therefore not being removed from nature. Bats are not pets! Only in their natural habitat bats can live there life and play their important role in the ecological balance of nature.
Unfortunately, there are sometimes accidents with bats that are mostly caused by humans (tree felling, house renovations, traffic accidents with cars, accident with wind-mills, ...) Only this fact justifies us people to take an injured wild animal over a period of time in care. But as soon as a bat is recovered, it must be released close to the place where it was found. The bat can now live wild and free again - hopefully forever.
Please note our instructions on release.
