Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of introducing certification for bat-friendly crop harvesting regimes on bat populations.
‘We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Certification schemes can encourage bat-friendly crop harvesting regimes and raise awareness of bat conservation. An example is the Tequila Interchange Project, which awards tequila producers a ‘bat-friendly’ tequila label if they use farming practices that benefit bats (www.tequilainterchangeproject.org).
