National Flying-fox Forum

Published 23rd Nov 16 12:00 AM by SEQ Division

Join us for the second annual National Flying-Fox forum.

Flying-foxes, bats, fruit bats, megabats, whatever they are called they are one of the most recognisable species in Australia. They are a common sight in many regional and urban areas at dusk as they leave their camps along waterways or dense vegetation to forage up to 50 kilometres away in their search for food. They are pollinators of a variety of native plants and a dispersal agent of seeds.

Flying-foxes are gregarious animals that can disrupt people sleeping and camps produce strong odours, which make adjacent living difficult. They are also protected species, including some that are threatened, and management of camps requires approaches that are ethical, humane and will not negatively impact on each population.
