Flying-foxes

Flying-foxes are intelligent, social animals that live in large colonies comprised of individuals and family groups. Flying-foxes are critical in ensuring ecosystem health and the long-term survival of our Eucalypt forests. Flying-foxes are also a threatened species under NSW and Commonwealth legislation.

Council is managing flying-foxes in line with the Eurobodalla Flying-Fox Management Plan 2018, which takes resident impacts and flying-fox welfare into account. This may also include carrying out approved dispersal activities in extreme circumstances where the impacts on residents are very high on Council-managed lands.
