Common pipistrelle freed – 19-04-13
That bat was a miserable creature when it was brought to Ecomare in February. The pipistrelle had woken up from its hibernation, but it was much too cold and it was yet unable to find any food. Ecomare employee Pierre Bonnet has all along taken care of this bat. That is not easy, because bats have to eat very often, including at night. Fortunately, the bat is in a good condition again, so well, that during the warm weather of recent days it could be released.
The sisters Nienke, Lotte and Linde had found the bat with their father in his workshop. Now that the bat would be freed, they were invited. Just before leaving the bat got one last meal, and the girls could still see the bat one final time. Then they along with Pierre and his daughter Jonne, released it, near Den Burg town.
