Abstract

This study aimed to provide evidence to planners, developers and ecological practitioners on the efficacy of bat roost mitigation and compensation to help them ensure that mitigation approaches are evidence-based and beneficial for bats.
Primary objectives
(a) To determine the effectiveness of mitigation strategies for bats within buildings.
(b) To identify which characteristics of mitigation features are associated with the likelihood of successful retention of bat populations post-development.
Secondary objectives
(a) To assess the extent of bat roost mitigation and post-construction monitoring that is currently occurring.
(b) To determine what methodological improvements could be made to the collection and reporting of pre-development survey data and post-development monitoring.
