Rita and Tiago are the new ‘Bioinsighters’ in South Africa. After a few weeks in Portugal, they are ready, and really excited, to take off in this new adventure in African soil. This is a clear sign of Bioinsight’ commitment in keep our ongoing internationalization strategy, strengthening our position in one market we already know well. Check in the video below, a brief testimony of the two youngsters before their departure.
It’s earlier next month (March 1 - 2) that Mexico WindPower 2017 Exhibition and Congress will take place in Mexico City. In its sixth edition, Mexico WindPower 2017 has emerged as the most important international business summit of renewable energies in the country. Co-organized by AMDEE – Asociación Mexicana de Enegía Eólica, GWEC – Global Wind Energy Council and E.J. Klause de México, the event comes in line with the Mexico’s goal to reach 35% of generation of electric ener
This field action is under an ongoing monitoring project at the Portuguese Northeast region. Its main goal is to identify bat shelters within the study area so we can check if their level of use is having variations with the human action. As we check the shelters we evaluate the presence of individuals and/or the existence of evidence of it (guano). When we find bats, we count them, take pictures and try to identify the specie. Take a peek at our work. IMPORTANT NOTE: Bioinsi
As part of a mammals monitoring survey, with emphasis on the Iberian Wolf and its preys, a Bioinsight biologists team has recently gone to Northern Portugal to collect data from camera trapping method as well as to replace those devices, in order to keep the ongoing study. In this work we also performed transects for the detection of presence of these animals. Under this project scope, several indicators are under study, as so: Spatial distribution of mammal species; Frequenc
As part of Wind Farms survey, bat shelter monitoring has an essential role for these species survival, especially during the most important parts of their life cycle. This is the hibernation stage, one of the most critical one. This stage is an adaptation, which consists in a torpor (deep sleep), to avoid the lack of food during winter. With this in mind, is crucial to act with extreme caution so bats don’t awake, otherwise, if they do wake up, they can´t go back to torpor, a
We have started the year with a team meeting. For one day we gathered at our office in Odivelas and worked in groups to assess our 2016 achievements and challenges and also our perspectives for 2017. It was a fun day, full of good ideas. Just below you can find the resulting video of the gathering, take a look.

Mark your calendar, will take place, next 6 – 8 September, one of the major conferences regarding wind generators impacts on wildlife. After Berlin, CWW 2017 (Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts) will be attended in Estoril, being expected the presence of over 300 participants coming from about 40 countries, representing all the major stakeholders: investigators, promoters, private consultants and governmental authorities. This year’s conference will include an exh
Spatial analysis as a “recipe” for mapping bat use of the area. Anyone working in monitoring projects knows that field monitoring is expensive stuff and bat monitoring is no different. A 4x4 vehicle, special gear such as bat ultrasound detector that “hear” bat calls in the night, highly specialized human resources working for mean high costs. Therefore, one expects that this step of the project must be important to justify such a large portion of the project’s budget spent in
