There is currently a lack of evidence on the effectiveness of mitigation and compensation strategies for bats affected by development. The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management in partnership with the University of Exeter, and the Bat Conservation Trust have both secured funding for separate but complementary projects to fill this evidence gap.The success of these projects is strongly dependent on receiving mitigation case studies from ecologists - from consultants through to local authority ecologists.
We are therefore appealing for ecologists to provide the details of any bat roost mitigation case studies which fit our broad criteria (see flow chart below).
Case studies can easily be shared by either i) uploading reports or ii) filling in our questionnaire.To find out more details and to start uploading case studies please visit THIS PAGE.
CIEEM and BCT are extremely grateful for any time given in aiding this research.
