Wildlife and renewable energy: German politics cross migratory bats

Voigtetal_2015ejwr_thumb This important study concludes that more than 250,000 bats are killed annually due to interactions with German wind turbines, and total losses may account for more than two million killed bats over the past 10 years, if mitigation measures were not practiced.

Wind farm facilities in Germany kill noctule bats from near and far

Journal.pone.0103106_thumb In this recent study, researchers present a comprehensive study on the breeding provenance of endangered and protected noctule bats killed at German wind turbines, showing that individuals from local and distant populations are among the recorded fatalities. The results provide a first step on the way towards an evaluation on how bat fatalities at wind turbines might impact local and regional populations in migratory bat species.
