National Threatened Species Day 2012
FLYING-FOXES URGENTLY NEED YOUR HELP
On National Threatened Species Day, Friday the 7th September, 2012 the Queensland State Government gazetted changes to the Nature Conservation Act 1992 which will once more permit orchardists to shoot flying-foxes. Shooting flying-foxes was proven to be inhumane in 2008 by the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee when they declared that shooting was an act of cruelty. Shooting bats is still as cruel in 2012 as it was in 2008 as attempting to shoot to kill a small, dark target at night is almost impossible.
