In the last decades, all the European species of "bats" had a significant decrease in number of specimens. There are various reasons for this downfall: habitats' loss, use of pesticides, obstacles caused by human activities and landscape change. These animals are extremely fragile and there is lack of knowledge about them: information about distribution, size and movements of the populations is not much and incomplete. Most of the areas used for their reproduction and/or overwintering are not known to us, preventing them from having an adequate conservation.
Researches on bat species conducted by the Network of Bondone Nature Reserves focused especially on four species of peculiar conservation interest: the greater horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum); the lesser horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus hipposideros); the Mediterranean horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus euryale) and the greater mouse-eared bat (Myotis myotis). Data represent a significant contribution to the in-depth analysis, necessary to guarantee conservation and preservation actions in accordance with the law in force.
