8 December 2016 Consistent Approach to Flying-Fox Management

Coffs Harbour City Council is to begin consulting the community on the development of a Strategic Flying-Fox Camp Management Plan.


The Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA) is home to three permanent flying-fox camps, Woolgoolga Lake Camp (listed as a nationally important flying-fox camp), Coffs Creek Camp, and Toormina Camp (also listed as a nationally important flying-fox camp), with temporary camps establishing in other areas from time to time.


Thanks to money granted from the State Government and additional funding from the Environmental Levy Program the Strategic Plan will allow for the development of a consistent approach to Flying-Fox management that recognises ecological values while minimising community impacts.

A community steering committee will be involved in the Plan’s development and review. Expressions of interest will be invited from residents surrounding the three permanent camps in addition to targeted invitations to local interest groups early in the new year.
