Watch a prize-winning film on bat conservation

"A prize-winning film from the LIFE project “conservation of three cave-dwelling bats in southern France” (LIFE04 NAT/FR/000080) can now be seen here . The 31-minute film won the nature conservation prize at the 2007 International Ornithological Film Festival held in Menigoute, France.
The film tells the story of the LIFE-Nature project, which aimed to improve the conservation status of three endangered bat species: the Mediterranean horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus euryale); the long−fingered bat (Myotis capaccinii); and Scheiber's bat (Miniopterus schreibersii). It captured their little-known night-time activities and recorded the activities of the project partners in working to improve their understanding of the animals’ behaviour to thus enable a better conservation of their natural habitat.
