Council is hosting a couple of community workshops on flying foxes (with the rather obvious intent of putting out some positive info on bats to counter some of the negative experiences people have with bats in their areas).
We wondered if you can help us market the two workshops upcoming, using your email lists to members or newsletters, or your Facebook pages. You may wish to advertise the kids’ workshop in September first and then the adults’ workshop for November can be advertised a few weeks later. Up to you!
- Workshop for kids/families at CREEC, Burpengary
Saturday 29 September, 9-11am
FREE, bookings preferred
The Bat Man, Les Hall, has a lifelong interest in flying foxes – and will describe why they can be good, bad and batty. Come and discover what’s to like about bats.
- Workshop for adults at Yuraba Conference Centre, Church Rd, Eatons Hill
Saturday 3 November, 2-4pm
FREE, bookings preferred
Presented by leading expert on bats, Dr Les Hall, this balanced workshop provides information on the ecology of flying foxes, their unique characteristics, their importance as pollinators and highlights some of the issues relating to their increasingly urban habitat.

PLEASE GIVE NOW
The sad reality is most koalas don’t survive when their homes are torn down. While searching for a new home, they suffer from starvation, deadly infections and attacks from dogs and cattle.
A tax-deductible gift from you today would help our work with koala carers, by providing essential medical supplies to help rehabilitate koalas for a return to the wild.
Your donation will also help us plant trees to create homes and safe habitat corridors for threatened koala communities. Plus, it will support us to put the pressure on governments to stop excessive tree-clearing that destroys koala habitat, so we can protect wildlife for the long-term.
With less than 48 hours remaining in this financial year, now is the best time to make your tax-deductible donation.
Thank you for your support,
