Just when we think things can't get any worse for our flying-foxes along comes a decision that beggars belief.

There are dependent young in the trees that cannot yet fly. WHAT CAN WE DO? We can all do our bit and let the Government and the Charters Towers Council know that the world is watching their despicable actions. 1. Email Charters Towers Council - mail@charterstowers.qld.gov.au and point out the cruelty and futility of this dispersal. 2. Email Andrew Powell Qld Environment Minister - environment@ministerial.qld.gov.au 3. Email Greg Hunt Federal Environment Minister - greg.hunt.mp@environment.gov.au 4. Email Mark Butler Shadow Federal Environment Minister - Mark.Butler.MP@aph,gov.au 5. Please share this post far and wide. Overseas people can help by explaining to the aforementioned officials why they will not spend their tourist dollars in Qld until we treat our bats with respect and stop trying to exterminate them in the cruellest possible ways.
