All bat species in Ireland are protected under national and European legislation. At MKO, we have the largest dedicated bat team in Ireland.
Our Bat Ecologists are trained and licenced for specialised survey work, including the use of thermal cameras, endoscopic equipment, and sonogram analysis. Our team specialise in survey scope, design input, impact assessment and mitigations aimed at safeguarding bats. Our team has experience with projects from small-scale demolitions or heritage building renovations to large-scale residential and renewable energy developments, carrying out surveys and providing mitigation and compensation measures in line with best practice guidance.
