BCI & BLM Best Management Practices Papers

Bat Conservation International and the US Department of the Interior — Bureau of Land Management, Wildlife division work together to solve problems for bat populations. BCI asked me to create BMPs for BLM employees for a variety of situations involving bat safety. BLM branding was used at their request.

  • The first BMP addressed Wind Power allotments on BLM land, with respect to bats, both migratory and maternity colonies.
  • The second BMP addressed Abandoned Mine Lands and creating gates so bats and other wildlife could get in and out but the gates safely keeps humans out. (in progress)
