Conservation Dogs

Services - Carcass Detection

Every species of bat is protected under EU law. Their protection is not only a necessity but a requirement. 

Conducting surveys in to their mortality rates is common place around wind turbines, new roads and building construction. 

We have multiple dog teams available to cover large areas searching for bat carcasses; locating, collecting, storing and recording all relevant information using a well planned and executed methodology.

We can also conduct searcher efficiency trials, allowing the client to test the effectiveness of the dogs in the detection of bat carcasses. Last year, we were involved in 16 separate efficiency trials, in different landscapes across the UK. Our dogs proved to be over 90% effective at detecting bat carcasses.
