Flying fox dispersal at Coolum splinter camp


Council will start non-lethal dispersal actions at Coolum Beach on Monday, May 25 to encourage Flying foxes to leave their roost and hopefully provide relief to local residents. Division 9 Councillor Steve Robinson said the local community attended a public meeting in April to discuss proactive works and the need for dispersal if these proved unsuccessful. “Council removed some of the roost trees at the site last month, however the Flying foxes continue to return to the Elizabeth Street site,” Cr Robinson said.

“Dispersal is now our final option—it’s just unfortunate that we can’t guarantee its long-term success.

“That said, we hope to provide at least short-term relief for residents impacted by the smell and noise associated with urban Flying fox roosts.

“Works will continue all week, and will involve contractors making noise, smoke and light at sunrise each morning with the intent of making returning to the roost after an evening’s foraging unappealing.

“Any Flying fox intervention has unknown consequences. Council will be monitoring populations at known roost sites within the region to assess the outcome of management actions, including potential relocation to equally unsuitable sites.”

If Coolum Beach residents observe Flying foxes in their backyards during the dispersal (daytime only), they are advised to contact Council on 0409 736 512 or email Council wildlife@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
