Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of changing the timing of forestry operations 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.
To reduce disturbance to bats, forestry operations may be avoided at times of year when they are most vulnerable such as during hibernation and the maternity season.
