Bats, both large and small, play an important role in the healthy functioning of our environment, both locally and regionally.  The last couple of years have seen increased pressure on a couple of these bat species, particularly the grey headed flying fox.  Lack of food and heat wave conditions have led to mass mortalities across the nation for this species, and fracturing of camps leading to smaller satellite camps setting up in areas like Kiama.

This workshop is a great opportunity to learn more about these fascinating creatures. Local ecologist and bat expert, Garry Daly will present an informative talk followed by a walk to view a local flying fox colony right here in Kiama. The talk will be suitable for older children, so families are encouraged to attend.

Open to all residents of the Kiama Municipality.
