Golden Steps of Honour ...
to protect natural values such as bats
in Europe and around the world
Five steps to move forward, and to get the results in Real Nature Conservation (RNC).
Step ONE. Put important bat sites (IBS) on the map, using the best available knowledge gained by the best available bat experts.
Step TWO. Reveal what bats are doing at these sites, and which are their survival requirements.
Step THREE. Include IBS in area planning schemes and other human activity plans, so important bat areas and habitats become visible.
Step FOUR. Make a bat population support scheme (BPSS) for the area, and include in it a persistent and effective monitoring scheme both for the bat population and BPSS. This scheme should be good enough and clear enough to enable its easy implementation over time.
Step FIVE. Implement your BPSS, and advertise your doings among the public.
