Please help us replace unsafe netting


As we live in a sub tropical climate we have massive problems with gardeners using cheap killer netting to protect their fruit trees from predation from bats, birds and possums and thousands of animals are tortured and killed each year in large aperture netting.

There is an animal safe netting available, which BCRQ likes to provide free of charge when we attend a netting rescue, helping eliminate these tragic events one by one.

The safe netting is cut into 6 x 6 metre pieces before distribution to rescuers who take away the unsafe netting in exchange for this safe netting.

Sincere thanks to all who have contributed, as you are actively saving flying-foxes, snakes, birds and possums from a torturous death. We are so appreciative of your support

BCRQ is in need of the safe netting all year round. If anyone would like to donate to this project, we are able to accept donations through Paypal - see link below - please mark the donation as 'Netting Fund'.

A useful resource for people who want to know more about wildlife friendly fencing (an the dangers of poor fencing /netting) is

Any flying-fox by itself through the day is in trouble.
Don't touch but please call 0488 228 134 for Brisbane and surrounding districts.

Bats.......protect them or lose them
