EUROBATS Intersessional Working Groups

At the time being 16 Intersessional Working Groups (IWG) actively work on different bat conservation issues in order to fulfill the requirements of the effective resolutions together with three ad hoc IWG which focus on more specific issues. Several IWGs have finished their work and now dissolved. 

The Secretariat is pleased to announce that the EUROBATS Advisory Committee Workspace is  available. This is an electronic, web-based communication space and working area for the EUROBATS Advisory Committee. It aims to provide a central platform for collaboration and support the communication and intersessional work of the AC. It can be accessed here.
