Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (Bonn Convention) This global Convention is intended to encourage cooperation between member parties in the conservation of species that move between range states. It provides for the protection of some migratory species, but its main intended method of operation is to encourage range states to setup Agreements to benefit species listed on Appendix II, which includes all European bats. One such Agreement is the Agreement on the Conservation of Populations of European Bats’, known as ‘Eurobats’, which came into force in 1994. Its main provisions are to restrict the killing or capture of bats the protection of key bat habitats the coordination of research and conservation experience and increasing public awareness of bat conservation. These requirements do not appear to need any changes to current UK domestic legislation.
