To Stay on the Ground

One of the main issues with investigating bird and bat mortality at wind farm sites is the removal of the remains of the dead animal, the “carcass”, by scavengers (such as ravens, jackals or insects) before the human surveyors are able to find and document them. The scavenger activity is one of the reasons that the real number of carcasses at a site is more than what is documented by the researchers.

This stance is shared by many international conservation institutions, including The Habitats Directive which is currently responsible for the legal protection of 45 species of bats across Europe.
