Bat Night

We kindly invite you to take part in Bat Night, to be organised by the Public Institute of Krka National Park at 7:30 pm on Friday, 25 August 2017 at the children's playground in Skradin.

A programme has been designed for children and their parents, according to the following schedule:

7:30 pm Children's playground in Skradin – children's art workshop and interactive games, bat olympics, long-fingered bat cave, searching for bats with the bat detector, visiting a bat house, bat quiz, dancing bats, little cave explorers, and the witch's corner.

A novelty this year is bat origami, organised by Luka Barižon, and the little cave explorers with cave exploring activities, organised by the Hyla association, the society for the protection of amphibians and reptiles in the Republic of Croatia.

8:30 pm Branch office of the Public Institute of Krka National Park – lecture "Kings of the Night", about the life of bats, by Danijela Hamidović, MSc

Prior to the lecture, the educational group Zečići from Drinovci will perform a presentation, recital and dance from their annual educational project Ovdje piše: Čuvajmo šišmiše (It reads here: Conserve the bats). During the academic year, children take part in a number of activities to become better familiar with the life of bats, and participate in their conservation.

9:00 pm Trg Male Gospe in Skradin – performance of the play Lara u svijetu životinja (Lara in the world of animals), by the Smješko Theatre from Zagreb. This is an original ecological play intended for young audiences, and lasts 50 minutes. Rodan the stork, Risica the mouse, Mrs. Šišmišica the bat and Martin Lijepouhi the rabbit are just a few of the forest characters that will give their advice on what every person can do to help them survive.

Bats are an exceptionally important part of the global ecosystem, and an indicator of a healthy environment. There are 17 species of bat inhabiting Krka National Park, which is 48.6% of the total number of bat species present (35 in total) in Croatia. The Miljacka II cave in the park is home to one of the largest colonies of the long-fingered bat in Europe, numbering some 7000 individuals.
