Dutch town implements new bat-friendly street lighting

ga('send', 'event', 'Uncategorized', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

In the Netherlands, a sustainable housing development in Zuidhoek, Nieuwkoop, uses bat-friendly street lighting. The area is part of the Nieuwkoopse Plassen, which is a designated part of Europe’s Natura 2000. The Natura 2000 network provides rare and threatened species with protected resting and breeding sites. Maintaining essential natural habitats helps to accomplish this. Nieuwkoop is an important feeding ground for the pipistrelle bat species. So the collection of 89 new homes seeks to live in harmony with them. Human presence greatly affects bats through the use of lighting at night. Bats prefer complete darkness.
