Going Batty – Flying Foxes in Adelaide

You’re not going batty – there really are flying foxes flying over Adelaide. Join us when Terry Reardon presents the batty facts including that approximately 7,000 grey-headed flying foxes roost in the pine trees near the entrance to the Adelaide Zoo.  A protected native species, the flying foxes are relatively new to South Australia, starting to arrive about seven years ago. This was possibly due to the changing availability of food resources driven by climate. Grey-headed flying-foxes formed their first breeding colony in Adelaide in 2011 and many residents have observed them flying or feeding in trees. This talk will explain why they are here, what are the issues and will show you results of current research. This is a Saturday only presentation.
