Two-day seminar on bat migration in the European lowlands

On 8 and 9 November 2019, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) and the Bats Working Group of Natuurpunt Study organize a two-day symposium on bats migration.

On Friday, participants assemble in Ostend - in the offices of VLIZ - for an international seminar on bats migration along the North Sea coast as an underexposed phenomenon with consequences for spatial planning and landscape management (language: English).

On Saturday, the location is Tillegem Castle in Bruges, where the anniversary seminar will highlight 40 years of bat research by volunteers (languages: English, Dutch and French). The two-day symposium is made possible thanks to the IHD operation of the Houtland Regional Landscape and is part of the EU micro-Interreg project Chiro’Act. With the support of Lifewatch Belgium.
