Bat banding for scientific purpose has been debated for long, but it was never regulated by any agreed national protocol. This is why the Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea, the Italian Wildlife Institute and the Italian Chiroptera Research Group worked together producing a technical report on bat banding with the description of the administrative procedure you have to follow to be allowed to band bats, and how to record your data in the national database.
