Instead, the animals are better off in specialized rescue centers.
The slightly lighter ventral side is yellow-brown. The muzzle and ears of the house bat are black, the latter are relatively short and almost triangular in shape.
With fawns or foxes found, it is better not to go to the nearest animal shelter. Because they are often not specialized in the animals or have no space to look after the found animals. Instead, the animals are better off in specialized rescue centers.

Find the right shelter
A central online directory of contact points can now be found on the homepage www.wildtierschutz-deutschland.de, according to the association. On the one hand, reception stations are arranged there by postcode, and on the other, specialists for individual animal species can be searched for.
Do not take animals with you too quickly
Animal lovers shouldn’t overdo it with their helpfulness. It is best to observe supposedly abandoned deer, foxes or hedgehogs for a while and, above all, not to touch them. Otherwise they will no longer be accepted by their mother. Only obviously injured animals should get immediate help.
No question about it: children can be loud. Especially when they’re raging. However, neighbors generally have to endure noise from children. In any case, for fear of the screaming, they cannot bring down a building permit for a daycare center. That was decided by a court.
Day care centers are also permitted in purely residential areas. Residents can therefore not defend themselves against the construction with the argument that the day care center is disturbing in such an area. Residents do not have the right to have construction measures based on their personal life situations. The building law is basically property-related, explained the Administrative Court of Hesse (Ref .: 3 B 107/17). This is what the magazine points out "German housing industry" (Issue 7-8 / 2017) of the house owners association & Reason to Germany.
Residents sued against building permission for a daycare center
In the negotiated case, residents had sued against the building permit for a daycare center in their neighborhood. They feared restrictions due to the up to 66 seats. Among other things, they feared unreasonable impairment from those looking for a parking space. A daycare center is not allowed in a purely residential area anyway, so the argument of the residents.
The court saw it differently: When assessing whether construction projects are legally permissible, subjective and personal sensitivities are generally not taken into account. Especially in residential areas is also "the establishment of childcare facilities is objectively required".

No children’s noise "harmful environmental impact"
An area conservation claim is limited to preventing projects that are neither regularly nor exceptionally permitted in a building area. The effects of noise caused by day-care centers are generally not harmful to the environment and therefore not unreasonable nuisances or disturbances.
Chipmunks are common around the world. In Europe the rodent is called Burunduk. Find out here how you can recognize the Burunduk and what way of life the croissant follows.

Chipmunk: This is how you recognize the rodent
The chipmunk owes its name to five black-brown vertical stripes that stand out from the brown-gray fur of the rodent and adorn its back. The matte fur becomes significantly lighter towards the flanks and belly. Compared to the squirrel, the chipmunk is smaller – its body length is between thirteen and seventeen centimeters, of which the tail is eight to eleven centimeters.
Compared to the squirrel, the chipmunk’s tail is less bushy. Another distinguishing feature of the chipmunk is its large cheek pouches: when they are full, they are as big as the head itself.
Way of life of Burunduks
The Burunduk prefers to live in forest areas between Japan and eastern Finland. Although the chipmunk is excellent at climbing, it usually hangs out on the ground. It creates caves underground that can be up to 1.5 meters deep and 2.5 meters long. The earth caves are divided into sleeping caves, toilets and pantries.

In the pantries, the rodents collect kilos of plant-based food, including nuts and acorns, seeds, berries, dried mushrooms and much more. The Burunduks hibernate from October to March. In Siberia it happens in the spring that brown bears track down the caves and eat up the food supplies including the hibernating croissant.
There are many natural enemies that the red squirrel must be wary of in its natural habitat: martens and birds are just as dangerous as the gray squirrel, which is an American relative of the rodent.

Natural enemies of the squirrel
The pine marten is a natural enemy of the squirrel, with whom the small rodent also shares the habitat. Because the pine marten is almost as nimble as the squirrel when it comes to climbing, which is precisely why it is particularly dangerous. It is also nocturnal and can track down the squirrel while it sleeps.
But many birds of prey can also pose a threat: buzzards, eagle owls, tawny owls and also the goshawk hunt the squirrel. Domestic cats, foxes and wildcats also chase the rodent when it comes near them.
Relatives as enemies: gray squirrels
A danger threatens the squirrel from a close relative – the gray squirrel. This squirrel, introduced to Europe from America, endangers the European squirrel because it spreads in its habitat such as the deciduous and mixed forests. It is also a host for the so-called squirrel smallpox, from which it cannot get sick itself, but the squirrel can. So far, however, the gray squirrel has only settled in Italy and Great Britain.

Avoidance of danger: quick escape
Birds in particular often have difficulties catching the squirrel because it is very agile. The squirrel’s tactic in escaping is to run up a tree trunk in circular motions – this can often shake off the pursuers. It can also fall to the ground from great heights without causing serious injuries.
Penguins spend most of their lives in water, where they are exposed to increasing levels of noise. But how they hear is largely unexplored. German and Danish researchers want to change that. To do this, penguins are trained.
The little young man with the yellow cable tie on the right wing pretends to be a model pupil: the Humboldt penguin touches a colored board with its beak for about four seconds. As a reward, after a click there is a sprat from the hand of animal keeper Anne May. In the penguin enclosure of the Stralsund Ozeaneum four young animals, shielded from the rest of the population, have been learning to react gradually to given stimuli for about four weeks.
The German Marine Museum in Stralsund does not want to impress the visitors with the trained animals. The tests have a scientific purpose: marine biologists from Germany and Denmark topadultreview.com want to study the hearing ability of penguins. The animals should indicate later when they have heard a sound signal emitted on land or in the water.
Man-made noise affects wildlife
Due to the increasing economic use of the oceans, man-made underwater noise has increased enormously in recent decades: Ship propellers generate a permanent humming sound. Anchors for drilling rigs and wind turbines are driven into the seabed. Mineral resources are mined at the bottom of the oceans. "The problem of noise has a similarly high priority for the animals in the oceans as the problem of garbage, but is by far not as well known to the public" says the director of the German Maritime Museum, Harald Benke.
So far, it is not only unknown whether the underwater noise has an effect on the hearing ability of the penguins and whether it irritates the animals on their migrations through the oceans. The researchers only have a rudimentary knowledge of the frequency range and volume in which these birds hear. With the exception of a New Zealand study from 1969 on the hearing ability of African penguins on land, there have so far been hardly any scientific studies on the subject, says the head of the research project, Stralsund marine biologist Michael Dähne. "In order to make a future forecast of the effects of underwater noise on penguins, basic data is first required" he justifies the investigations that have now started.

Acoustic perception on land and water is different
In the three-year research project, the researchers want to create audiograms for different penguin species. To do this, the animals do not go to a listening laboratory, but are later exposed to different tones and signals in sound chambers on land and under water. In addition to the Marine Museum, the University of Odense, the Marine Science Center of the University of Rostock and the Berlin Museum of Natural History are involved in the project.
"Like all birds, penguins do not have an outer ear and, compared to mammals, birds do not have three ossicles, but only one" makes Dähne clear. Sound waves also propagate in air and water at different speeds. It can therefore be assumed that penguins perceive acoustic stimuli differently on land and in water. The experiments should show how.
For the research project, gentoo penguins, rockhopper penguins or king penguins in Odense, Denmark, are trained for hearing tests in parallel to the Humboldt penguins in Stralsund. As Dähne says, there is hardly any experience with this so far.

"The learning curve for the Humboldt penguins is steep" says animal keeper Anne May about her protégés, who sneak around their legs without hesitation and curiously stretch their necks. May does not yet want to judge whether the animals are intelligent. "One should not confuse a lack of shyness with intelligence."
