Flying-foxes

Cairns is home to a large number of Spectacled Flying-foxes and based on expert advice, Council has adopted a multi-faceted strategy to managing flying-foxes in urban areas, particularly in the Cairns city centre.

The strategy is designed to provide residents with scientific facts about SFF populations, behaviours and diseases and to educate the important of Flying-foxes to our natural environment and ecosystem.
