Kadriorg Park Bats to Move Into Municipal Housing ({{commentsTotal}})


The bats in Kadriorg Park will be given “municipal apartments” similar to bird houses, but larger, and some lights in the parks will also be changed for their benefit.

The project’s estimated cost, sought from the Environmental Investment Center, is 47,000 euros, Eesti Päevaleht reported.

Estonia has 12 bat species and six of them are represented in Kadriorg. According to the park’s director Ain Järve, the Kadriorg colony is considered to be one of the most valuable in the country.

The need to relocate the bats comes from a shortage of their “natural apartments” - bats have spent winters in unrenovated houses but these are increasingly being restored and trees can offer them shelter only in the summer, Järve said.
