ON THE CONSERVATION OF BATS IN EUROPE
The Contracting Parties
Recalling the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals opened for signature in Bonn on 23 June 1979;
Recognising the unfavourable conservation status of bats in Europe and non-European Range States and in particular the serious threat to them from habitat degradation, disturbance of roosting sites and certain pesticides;
Conscious that the threats facing bats in Europe and non-European Range States are common to both migratory and non-migratory species and that roosts are often shared by migratory and non-migratory species;
Recalling that the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals held in Bonn in October 1985 agreed to add European species of CHIROPTERA (Rhinolophidae and Vespertilionidae) to Appendix II of the Convention and instructed the Secretariat of the Convention to take appropriate measures to develop an Agreement for these species;
Convinced that the conclusion of an Agreement for these species would greatly benefit the conservation of bats in Europe;
Have agreed as follows:
ARTICLE I

For the purposes of this Agreement:
(a) “Convention“ means the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (Bonn 1979);

(c) “Range State“ means any State (whether or not it is a Party to the Convention) that exercises jurisdiction over any part of the range of a species covered by this Agreement;
(d) “Regional Economic Integration Organisation“ means an organisation constituted by sovereign States to which this Agreement applies and which has competence in matters covered by this Agreement and has been duly authorised, in accordance with its internal procedures, to sign, ratify, accept, approve or accede to it;

O VARSTVU NETOPIRJEV V EVROPI
Pogodbenice so se
ob sklicevanju na Konvencijo o varstvu selitvenih vrst prosto živečih živali, dano na voljo za podpis v Bonnu 23. junija 1979;
ob priznavanju neugodnega stanja ohranjenosti netopirjev v Evropi in neevropskih državah na območju njihove razširjenosti in še posebej resne ogroženosti teh vrst zaradi poslabšanja habitata, motenja zatočišč in nekaterih pesticidov;
ker se zavedajo, da so nevarnosti, ki pretijo netopirjem v Evropi in neevropskih državah na območju njihove razširjenosti, skupne selitvenim in neselitvenim vrstam in da si selitvene in neselitvene vrste pogosto delijo zatočišča;
ob sklicevanju na to, da je bilo na prvem sestanku konference pogodbenic Konvencije o varstvu selitvenih vrst prosto živečih živali v Bonnu oktobra 1985 dogovorjeno, da se evropske vrste CHIROPTERA (Rhinolophidae in Vespertilionidae) dodajo v dodatek II h konvenciji in so bila sekretariatu konvencije dana navodila za izvedbo ustreznih ukrepov za pripravo sporazuma za te vrste;
prepričane, da bi sklenitev sporazuma za te vrste veliko prispevala k varstvu netopirjev v Evropi;
sporazumele:
