Bats are sensitive to artificial light. Since both habitats and roosts of bats can potentially be affected by artificial light through outdoor lighting, the conservation of bats must be considered in approval procedures for lighting projects. In this one-day webinar, the participants will learn how bats respond directly to different lighting sources, light colours and brightness, how they are indirectly influenced through their prey (mainly insects) and how the mostly negative impact of artificial light on bats can be avoided or mitigated. Practical examples will be used to illustrate how sustainable lighting concepts can be established from the perspective of bat conservation. The webinar is aimed at consultants, experts, as well as representatives of authorities and non-governmental organizations.

The course will be held in English.
