Bat Surveys

HRM’s wildlife team are skilled at understanding bat natural history, performing bat habitat assessments, and implementing the survey methods, equipment, and technology needed to determine their presence on the landscape.  We perform pre/post-construction bat monitoring surveys for wind energy developers.  HRM applies the latest survey techniques using modern technology and equipment based on the evolving body of scientific research on bat interactions with wind turbines. In addition,

HRM professionals conduct habitat assessments and field surveys for the federally endangered Indiana bat to support compliance with the Endangered Species Act for transmission, wind energy, transportation, pipeline, and development clients.

HRM is prepared to assist you with:

  • Bat screening analyses;
  • Habitat assessments;
  • Field surveys (bat echolocation & mist netting);
  • Telemetry tracking; and
  • Regulatory compliance.
