NE appoints expert bat conservation panel

Natural England has appointed a new expert panel to help shape the future of bat conservation in this country. As Natural England considers an innovative approach to licensing across a range of species, it is looking at how the implementation of protected species legislation could be improved in its delivery for conservation and ensuring that regulation is applied proportionately. The Bat Expert Panel will provide a forum for generating ideas and testing Natural England’s thinking with the aim of securing better outcomes for bats and stakeholders. Find out more on Gov.UK>
