About this book

Language: German

The lesser horseshoe bat is one of the rarest bat species in Germany and Switzerland with only a few local occurrences. Soon after crossing the border to Austria, it is doing much better, just like in France. Together with Wolfgang Sauerbier, one of the most profound connoisseurs of the lesser horseshoe bat, the authors experienced what are probably the most unusual living quarters in Germany in the Kyffhäuser mountain range, which gave an idea of ​​how flexible this bat can be with regard to its choice of habitat. And they learned that it had disappeared there from the 1960s to the 1990s, too. But then individual animals starting reappearing. To this day, the entire Kyffhäuser has gradually become horseshoe bat land again. Something is happening, the lesser horseshoe bat currently seems to be recovering and is hesitantly beginning to spread again. So it is worthwhile to actively support this process and to work for them now. The authors hope that with this book they will succeed in getting as many people as possible interested in the fascinating and likeable lesser horseshoe bat. Because their future as an extraordinary part of Germany's natural heritage depends to a very considerable extent on whether we tolerate them in our immediate neighborhood or not.

Summary in German:
Die Kleine Hufeisennase ist in Deutschland und der Schweiz eine der seltensten Fledermausarten mit nur wenigen lokalen Vorkommen. Schon bald jenseits der Grenze zu Österreich geht es ihr genauso wie auch in Frankreich dagegen sehr viel besser. Gemeinsam mit Wolfgang Sauerbier, einem der profundesten Kenner der Kleinen Hufeisennase, erlebten die Autoren im Kyffhäuser die wohl ungewöhnlichsten Quartiere Deutschlands, die erahnen ließen, wie flexibel diese Fledermaus hinsichtlich ihrer Quartierwahl sein kann. Und sie erfuhren, dass sie auch dort von den 1960er bis in die 1990er Jahre verschwunden war. Doch dann tauchten zunächst einzelne Tiere wieder auf. Bis heute wurde nach und nach der gesamte Kyffhäuser wieder zum Hufeisennasen-Land. Es tut sich etwas, die Kleine Hufeisennase scheint sich aktuell zu erholen und beginnt zaghaft, sich wieder auszubreiten! Also lohnt es sich, diesen Prozess tatkräftig zu unterstützen und jetzt für sie tätig zu werden. Wir hof-fen, dass es gelingt, mit diesem Buch möglichst viele Menschen für die faszinierende und sympathische Kleine Hufeisennase zu interessieren. Denn ihre Zukunft als außergewöhnlicher Teil unseres Naturerbes hängt in ganz erheblichem Maße davon ab, ob wir sie in unserer unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft dulden oder eben nicht.
