Logging & Wood Harvesting

By NABCANABCA, on 17 Mar 2017 05:58

Threat Description

The impacts of forestry practices (including clear-cutting, selective logging, fuel wood collection, and charcoal production) in a semi-natural environment (non-plantation) that alter forested habitats used by bats for foraging and roosting. Potential impacts include direct loss of roost trees and roosting habitat, mortality from removal of occupied roost trees and negative impact of logging on insect prey abundance and diversity.
