Get to know your local bats

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.

Kiama Council is holding a talk and walk workshop, looking at bats large and small, and their importance to our local and regional environment.  

Join local ecologist and bat expert Garry Daly, for an informative and fascinating talk, followed by a walk to view a local flying fox colony right here in Kiama.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday 11 April from 2pm – 4:30pm, with the presentation taking place at the Kiama Community Garden, and the walking route to be confirmed on the day.  

This talk will be suitable for older children so families are encouraged to attend.  Participants should bring appropriate attire for walking in potentially wet and muddy areas.

Booking is essential and numbers are limited, so get in quick to secure your place.
