Flying foxes

Little Red Flying foxFlying foxes are residents of the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area and there is a semi-permanent colony or 'camp' within the city area.

In general, flying foxes are harmless to humans however, sometimes people may complain about the smell or noise associated with a flying fox camp.

The Council has worked closely with residents for many years to develop strategies for people to exist peacefully with this threatened species. 

A plan has been developed, the Grey-Headed Flying-Fox Plan of Management, which outlines actions and strategies for protecting this species. The strategy was prepared in consultation with relevant Government agencies, community groups and other stakeholders.
