Detection of fatalities is very important in determining the impacts caused. Bioinsight team is certified by the Special Unit of the Portuguese Public Police (K9 unit of UEP-PSP) to train detection dogs applied to ecological studies, namely to detect bird and bat carcasses.
We have conducted carcass searches with a human (ecologist) and dog team in several projects, achieving a higher accuracy regarding fatality estimates and therefore being able to present impact evaluations closer to reality.
This method has been extensively tested and is now proved to be more efficient than using human observers to detect carcass searches.
