Andrzej and Jolanta Węgiel
They are authors of many publications, scientific and popular, and engage into nature conservation, especially protection of bats.
Their activity was crucial in recovery of the lesser horseshoe bat population in Poland, and in planning of conservation activities, including Programme for the Conservation of the Lesser Horseshoe Bat. Both of them have substantial achievements in popularisation of knowledge about bats, and in shaping friendly attitude towards these animals.
