National recovery plan for the bare-rumped sheethtail bat Saccolaimus saccolaimus nudicluniatus

pdfPlanning Document Release date:


This plan was released in 2007 with the goal of improving the conservation status of the then critically endangered bare-rumped sheethtail bat. Restrictions on conservation efforts such as a poor understanding of species distribution and population location made the objective of this plan difficult. The actions of this recovery plan included characterising the echolocation call of the bare-rumped sheethtail bat, establishing population monitoring, conservation of roosting sites, and improving the knowledge of roosting requirements for the bat species.
