For bats and their future

Bats offer huge and free benefits for agriculture, forestry and for our lives in general, all over the world. In spite of these benefits, bats are endangered due to various human activities, which are sometimes mixed with instinctive negative feelings about them. The Centre for Bat Research and Conservation (CBRC) is an NGO established in 2017 in the heart of Transylvania (Romania), by several bat enthusiasts across the country. The CBRC’s purpose is to research and conserve Romanian bats, as well as their habitats and roosts, in order to protect nature in general, and to strive towards a healthier environment for us all. And we will stop only when our purpose and objectives have been fulfilled.
