By FlyByNightBatClinic - From Pic of the Week
This is Tammy. She is one of the many Grey Headed Flying Foxes in care at Fly By Night Bat Clinic Melbourne. This Summer, hundreds of baby and adult bats in Melbourne will need us. We want to be there for them, because every single one of these animals are precious. They are (environmentally listed as threatened) Grey Headed Flying Foxes, and they’re disappearing at a terrifying rate.
Summer is the peak season for bat rescues and emergencies.
Melbourne’s specialist bat clinic and shelter where pups and adult bats alike can recover safely among the treetops, in the peace and quiet of the forest, until they are strong enough to return to the wild. Whether it’s a hungry flying fox who’s unwittingly become entangled in a backyard fruit tree net in his nightly search for food, or a bewildered pup suddenly orphaned and alone and because her Mum has tragically died during a notorious Melbourne heatwave.
