Bosnia and Herzegovina

The project is planned to last five years, supported by other funding, or potentially through all Rufford levels of Grants. In the first year, we focused on defining the „zero state“of bat fauna within the area/territory of National Park Kozara. We provided a first assessing database, list of species, roosting and nursery sites and the rough estimation of the population sizes.
