The camp management plans were prepared by Hunter Councils Environment Division in partnership with Council and with funding from the NSW Department of Environment and Heritage.
The plans’ objectives are to enable land managers and other stakeholders to use a range of suitable management responses to sustainably manage flying-foxes, to better understand the effects of and mitigate direct negative impacts on local residents, to educate and better inform local communities about the importance and benefits of flying-foxes, and to conserve and protect, as required by law, flying-foxes and their habitat.
Community views on the flying-fox camps contributed to the plans through submissions, particularly submissions to the website survey, town meetings and individual meetings with impacted residents.
