Flying Fox Monitoring - results

A number of roosts are monitored in the Region on a regular basis. Several temporary roosts are monitored less frequently. Information on this page is regularly updated as data becomes available.

Disclaimer: Monitoring data is primarily obtained by day time counts at the best accessible location or locations to the roost. While this data provides a good guide to the species of flying-fox present and relative changes to the number of animals in a roost, the actual count is only the best estimate of the number of animals present on the date of monitoring. Flying-foxes are known to move between camps on a daily basis, so any roost count is only an estimated snapshot of individuals present at that time.

For further information, please contact Council or e-mail esmailbox@moretonbay.qld.gov.au.
