Flying-foxes targeted for dispersal again

flying fox

 

The flying-fox camp at Coolum had a reprieve from planned dispersal actions recently following the identification of heavily pregnant females.

This time, the important roost at Tepequar Drive, Maroochydore is the next site for dispersal actions following the poor decision by Council to pursue this highly questionable approach to the management and conservation of a Federally listed and ecologically significant species.

There is an opportunity to comment on the referral under the EPBC Act and we encourage you to provide comment in the limited period there is to do so. SCEC is finalising our submission and will put this up online or provide as requested as soon as possible
