Save the Grey-Headed Flying Foxes of Australia

Grey-headed flying-fox and despite being federally listed as vulnerable to extinction, Greys and two other unlisted flying-fox species are still being legally shot under permit in two Australian states.
Shooting bats was declared an act of cruely in 2008 by an independent body and it was subsequently banned until a change of government saw it's reintroduction.
The resumption of bat shooting under the guise of crop protection was announced on National Threatened Species day 2012 by the then Environment Minister, Andrew Powell and despite assurances from government to the contrary, it continues to this day.
What a sad indictment on governments that condone and permit deliberate acts of animal cruelty as investigated and confirmed by the Animal Welfare Committee in 2008.
Bats......protect them or lose them
Any flying-fox by itself through the day is in trouble.
