The Flying-fox Grants Program helped councils to manage flying-fox camps, consistent with the Flying-fox Camp Management Policy 2015.

Funded through the Department of Planning Industry and Environment and administered by Local Government NSW, this Program helped address identified flying-fox management issues facing NSW councils. 

The Program assisted councils:

  • Implement emergency flying-fox camp management measures following significant community impacts 
  • Prepare and implement flying-fox camp management plans 
  • Conduct communication, community engagement and education activities
