Professional course on bat mitigation – 18 February

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Our superb course in the Professional Series draws on our experience of producing, implementing and monitoring numerous EPSM licences for bats each year.

This one-day training is suitable for applied ecologists and developers and contractors, who wish to gain a better understanding of wildlife legislation and the planning process. We will share our understanding of what works effectively, and what less so, in mitigation schemes for bats, and you will leave with a good knowledge of bat ecology. The course presenter, Dr. Sarah Yarwood-Lovett, will outline the roosting requirements for bat species. Taking note of the type of roost present is the first stage in successful mitigation design because details can make the crucial difference between a replacement roost working… or not. Mitigation design also includes working practices on site and the location of features for roosting bats to use. Often, this advice will be passed through Architects and Clients and/or site contractors, so use of correct terminology can prevent details being lost in translation, and we can make some recommendations on how to avoid pitfalls.
