Bats Qld (Flying Foxes & Microbats) Inc. is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation founded in 2010. With the help of about 200 members, we RESCUE, REHABILITATE and RELEASE Flying Foxes and Microbats across South East Queensland (Gold Coast to Brisbane area) Australia, as well as EDUCATE the general public about their importance.

Here at Bats Qld, our primary goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and release any orphaned or injured Flying Foxes or Microbats that need our help.

The second goal which is just as important is to educate the young and old on the importance of Flying Foxes in our ecosystem along with dispelling the myths that have always surrounded these amazing mammals.

Bats Qld is dedicated to:

  • Providing education and information to the general public
  • Active conservation of Flying Foxes and Microbats and their habitat
  • The promotion of bats as a very important part of our ecology
  • The rehabilitation and release of bats back to the wild
  • The rescue of sick, injured & orphaned bats

To help achieve this in a professional manner Bats Qld are aiming to establish an education centre which will be a valuable resource for our community.
