Animal protection Find the bat!

Dogs are being used to sniff out bats in canton Ticino, so that more can be done to protect the endangered species. If foresters, for example, know where they are nesting, they can limit forestry activities to minimise the disturbance. But it takes a lot of training before sniffer dogs are ripe for the challenge of detecting these elusive mammals. (SRF/swissinfo.ch)
