The Rocky Bats

We are so fortunate to be able to offer our assistance and care for three little orphaned Flying foxes from Rockhampton. We have named them Tamarind, Tuckaroo and Jitta.

Sadly, some people just don’t understand these gorgeous creatures. These three, along with many other little pups, were orphaned in terrible circumstances, when humans forced their mums to abandon them. Too big to be carried and too young to fly, their mums would have had no choice but to leave them. To top it off, 40 degree heat added to their distress and caused many to die before they could be rescued … a story that you can Read about here.

Although they are still very very underweight these three little ones are safe and loved and doing well. We hope they will continue to thrive and go on to fly free.

Thank you again to Lea for the great photos.
