COUNCIL OPTIMISTIC ON FLYING FOX DISPERSAL

Flying-fox dispersal works in Larder St, Bargara began today (May 15) with the initial stages progressing well.

Natural resource management operational supervisor Nick MacLean said Council officers had commenced stage A of dispersal works which involved trimming the mid-storey layer of vegetation on some trees to make the area less attractive as a roost site.

“We are progressing quite well,” Mr MacLean said.

“We have noticed that the bat numbers are relatively low and the roost site is relatively large, which gives them room to move away.

“This is a good result as they are not showing any signs of distress.”

He said trimming was expected to be completed by next week at which time Council would reassess the situation to see what the next step would be in terms of dispersal of the Flying-fox colonies.

Mr MacLean said Council recognised this was a topic of significant interest and would do everything possible to ensure the community and all key stakeholders were kept fully informed of the progress of the situation.

“The overarching result Council would like to achieve is a great outcome for affected community members and the Flying-fox colonies,” Mr MacLean said.
