As a part of the LIFE Podkowiec+ project, a second (unfortunately the last) study tour „presence of horseshoe bat as a leverage for the socio-economic benefits for local communities” took place in early September. It was meant for the representatives of institutions and individual persons, whose activity is related to the conservation of lesser horseshoe and other bat species.

There were three main stops during the trip, all shown in separate chapters:

1 – Northern Thuringia

2 – Meiningen, southern Thuringia

3 – Hohenburg, Bavaria
