The event, organised by EUROBATS, takes place every year in more than 30 countries.
Nature conservation agencies and NGOs from across Europe pass on information to the public about the way bats live and their needs with presentations, exhibitions and bat walks, often offering the opportunity to listen to bat sounds with the support of ultrasound technology. The general date is set for the last weekend in August; however, local organisers sometimes choose other dates if more convenient.
The 15th European Bat Night will take place on 27-28 August 2011.
