by Heather Peebles

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

The Courier Coverage A team of ecology experts scaled more than 80 towering trees in one the most detailed ever studies of the bat population in part of Perthshire.

Now the findings will be used by wind energy specialist, Banks Renewables to ensure their proposal for a wind farm will have no negative impact on the nocturnal creatures.

The team from Heritage Environmental spent weeks climbing a total of 83 trees to assess the number of bats roosting in and around the Bandirran Estate, east of Balbeggie.

They undertook the survey on behalf of Hamilton-based Banks Renewables, which is progressing plans for a wind farm on the Bandirran Estate. For more information see the original press release.

The story was picked up by The Courier and featured in the Perth edition with a readership of 62,000.

The coverage was achieved as part of an ongoing PR campaign for Banks Renewables. If you would like to find out how quality, strategic, public relations can help boost your business, get in touch today.
