The Slovenian Association for Bat Research and Conservation, or SDVPN, is a non-government organisation that brings together all those who have an interest in bats and their preservation for future generations.

We focus on three connected areas which are:
•  to collect data on the location and ecology of bats in Slovenia ;
•  to strive to ensure that the stipulated protection of bats is implemented in practice;
•  to present these extraordinary animals of the night to the wider public through a great variety of events.

We will also publish our work on our website which is still under construction.
