[12-10-2018] The International Bat Night in Pleven
On the 10th of October we celebrated the International Bat Night at the Regional History Museum - Pleven.

Our hosts at the museum had invited young and older guests to learn interesting facts about bats. The Green Balkans team had prepared a presentation on the secret and intriguing life of bats, as well as all the equipment bat researchers use when studying the flying creatures. After that the guests had a chance to create a bat origami or a mask to take home. All students received information brochures and posters as well as ‘The adventures of Darky the bat’ book.
We were very happy to meet all the young explorers in Pleven! Thank you for taking part in the initiative!
