Raise awareness among the general public, tourists, the scientific community and government about the positive contributions and threats to bat species living in the caves of the Karst region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This will culminate with the first national "Bat Night" festival as part of the EUROBATS program. Create a network of volunteer bat monitors to provide accurate data on the occurrence and activity of bat species that will be collated into national and international databases.

Strategic Direction: 3 Improve the conservation and protection status of 44 priority key biodiversity areas
