Bats and Climate Change

Bats and Climate Change. Not an issue out of the comic books. By Madalena Sampaio. In English
Bonn may not be Germany’s capital anymore, but it’s certainly the capital of bats: 17 from the 24 species in the country live in this city. The flying mammals belong to the most endangered groups of animals in the country. However, thanks to local efforts, there is a positive ttrend in Europe: bat populations are recovering and some species thought to be extinct are even coming back. But, along with this good news there are also new challenges and conservation efforts cannot be reduced. Especially, when new theories suggest that pesticides and climate change are destroying huge populations of bats.
