Unfortunately flying-fox numbers are now declining due to loss of habitat; the grey-headed flying-fox is now listed nationally as vulnerable.
Between 2009-2011, SEQ Catchments worked with partners to protect and restore remaining roost sites and surrounding foraging habitat.
Prioritising which areas would be targeted involved a combination of GIS analysis, research information and community input.
Part of this project also involved developing a school education kit, with lessons and activities for Years 4-9 (visit the All About Bats website).
