Hellabrunn Zoo invites visitors to participate in the event Bat Night. The international awareness-raising event offers an opportunity to learn interesting facts about the endangered bats and takes place on 29-30 August.
Bat Night is marked by various institutions and nature conservation organisations in more than 30 countries. Launched in 1997, the event takes place every year on the last full weekend in August. The aim of the event is to highlight the threat facing the bat species and explain to the public the causes of the threat.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
