Today I visited Batavia Flying Fox Sanctuary in Woodford where they look after and release rehabilitated Flying Foxes (mainly Grey-Headed Flying Foxes & Black Flying Foxes). There were some new Flying Fox arrivals today brought in by Bats QLD. These bats needed to be looked after because of a heat wave through northern NSW (Casino). These Flying Foxes went into Creche today at Batavia and will eventually be released in the future. I will soon be putting more information about Bats QLD and Batavia on my website. I learned a lot of things today, like Flying Foxes groom themselves pretty much all day and when they need to do their business they will hang onto a branch and then go! Bats are very important because they pollinate across larger areas than bees and birds. Plus there are some plants that only open their flowers at night so the Flying Foxes are the only ones that can pollinate them. After all no me, no tree, no Koala, Gliders etc. Watch my interview below with Gabi from Batavia Flying Fox Sanctuary to learn more about the importance of flying foxes and why we need to help protect them.
