Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers:
Our “Flying Foxes & Aussie Wildlife” project receives hundreds of #flyingfoxes into care and offers a place of refuge for recovery until they are healthy, strong and confident enough for them to venture back into the wild. +Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers welcomes #researchers, #vet and work experience students so that they may utilise the facilities to fulfil course requirements and further their #wildlife studies.


Care for Flying Foxes and Bats

Description

The centre provides outstanding medical care to all species of sick, injured, and orphaned flying foxes and other species of bats. Although the centre specialises in bats, they are also a wildlife trauma centre that undertakes first response work for any native animal that requires care.
Most species of bat in Australia and around the world are at risk from land clearing, climate change, disturbance (wind farms, etc) and relocation by humans. Other reasons that bats come into care are cat/dog attacks, they become caught in barb wire or inappropriate fruit netting, are hit by cars, are suffering from heat stress or are hand fed the wrong food by people. Unfortunately, it has become common practice to attempt to relocate flying foxes, however, to date, no reliable method has been found to achieve camp 'relocation', with many relocations merely disturbing and stressing the bats. Bats imprint on a territory and are lost without their home. Species that compete for territory cannot be readily relocated as this causes conflict with other species located in the area.

The project receives hundreds of flying foxes into care and offers a place of refuge for recovery until they are healthy, strong and confident enough for them to venture back into the wild.

Other animals that are rescued and rehabilitated can include kangaroos, wallabies, ducks and geese. The project does not discriminate, they will provide a home for all animals who need it. However, the centre is predominantly bats.

The project welcomes researchers, vet and work experience students so that they may utilise the facilities to fulfil course requirements and further their wildlife studies.

The project strives to inspire the general public to accept flying foxes as essential contributors to our environment and to treasure all other native fauna.
