Bat Conservation & Rescue QLD Inc. operates a Rescue Line for bat rescue advice and assistance. The Rescue Line services the Greater Brisbane Area including Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan, Redlands and Pine Rivers. See our Rescue page for some general tips on what to do if you find a bat in trouble.
On Dec 2 a Queensland government sanctioned action will see dispersal attempts made on a colony of flying-foxes at Charters Towers using helicopters and water cannons, smoke and sirens. The Black Flying-foxes present will have dependent young and will not be allowed to retrieve their babies as they return to camp in the morning; meaning the babies will slowly die terrified and alone. Dispersal actions across Queensland must all be deferred until April/May 2014 when the babies will be able to fly with their mothers.
