Abstract: 

Planning permission is often conditional upon postconstruction, ecological monitoring of wind turbine developments to assess impacts on wildlife. Ecological monitoring at wind turbines frequently focuses on bird and bat carcass searches, which in some cases can be carried out more effectively and efficiently using wildlife detection dogs. This article describes the use of wildlife detection dogs to identify bat carcasses at Wanlip wind turbine, demonstrating the value of this novel monitoring option as an effective method to be used alongside other ecological monitoring methods.
