Flying Fox Pollination

Description

The Grey-headed Flying Fox is a largely migratory species, often shifting in response to changing food resources. It is thought to be important for the pollination of many forest trees including some eucalypts and is valuable for cross-pollinating between otherwise isolated pockets of forests. Because of its migratory nature, the impact we have on the species in Victoria will affect its population elsewhere. As an analogy, the JAMBA/CAMBA international agreements on migratory birds would be meaningless if Australia was to cull a species (especially at a breeding site) simply because it was causing a local problem.
