About the volunteering opportunity

We engage ourselves in the daily employment approximately around the year honorary for the receipt of the bats and their habitats.

In an infirmary we maintain hurt bats healthy and release them afterwards again.

Furthermore we use ourselves for concrete protection measures and advise humans over protection possibilities for bats. In this context, we also participate in various events with information booths and children's actions.

For schools, information cases with a lot of bat information for different age groups are available for loan, so that especially also the protection of species finds its place in environmental education. Of course, we also like to come personally to schools and kindergartens and inform the children about bat protection.

Also behind the scenes there is a lot going on, for example, there are different craft activities, logistics, outreach trips, field work and participation in bazaars, internet campaigning. Organization, demos and much more.

The work of the BUND Bat Center Hannover is diverse and there is always a lot to do.  

Your Tasks

We are looking for volunteers for the following areas:

public relations - bat care - reintroductions - field work (currently only offered to biologists) - crafts (currently no need) - logistics - outreach trips - children's activities - and much more. 

 

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.

Requirement is a minimum age of 18 years. 

No previous knowledge is required, everything can be learned with us.

Important: For the care work with the animals, a training period of several months is required. In addition, a cooperation at least once a week and participation in the AG meetings (about 12 a year) is a prerequisite. A short-term assistance in animal care can unfortunately not be made possible for reasons of quality assurance of care. 

Please note that the area of animal care is not barrier-free. Participation in events is conditionally barrier-free, depending on the venue. 

Your commitment is certainly worth its weight in gold! Therefore, an occupational health and safety instruction takes place at the beginning of the activity as well as once a year. Participation in the instruction is a prerequisite for the cooperation. 

Time required

Regularly
Approx. 3 hours per week.

The deployment times are flexible. You can commit yourself once a year up to daily for the bat protection.

The cooperation directly in the animal care requires a minimum commitment time of about 3 hours per week, because in the animal care a high quality and continuity must be ensured.
