Draft NSW Flying-Fox Management Policy 2014 and the accompanying Camp Management Plan Template Document.
"I am very disappointed that NSW has chosen to follow the Queensland path of devolving FF camp management to local councils and land managers. I find it hard to believe this policy has emanated from the Office of Environment and Heritage, whose focus should surely be on conservation of biodiversity and not the introduction of a policy that will instead contribute yet another threat to an already declining species, through the permitting of increased FF camp persecution through disturbance and dispersal?
However, I commend many parts of the draft Policy and accompanying Camp Management Template, particularly the emphasis on the Vulnerable status of the Grey-headed FF; protection of land that is declared critical habitat and; that all species of bats are protected under legislation."
