This will be a fabulous and enlightening morning. Come and be immersed in our native wildlife with Dr Les Hall and Terri Ridgeway from Bat Rescue. Les will start the morning talking about the lives of Echidnas, Bandicoots, Brush Turkeys and Flying-foxes and how they interact with humans. Terri Ridgeway will then give a talk on how to rescue and handle Flying-foxes and other wildlife (with a live Flying-fox). The last part of the morning will be another talk by Les on the amazing world of bats, including a section on Flying-fox management.
There will be time for a quick break and our usual herbal teas served.
Dr Les Hall retired to Maleny in 2001 after a career with the CSIRO, Division of Wildlife Research, and The University of Queensland. Although Les has a strong interest in birds, mammals and wildlife, in general, he is especially passionate about bats. Educating people about the important role bats play in our environment and dispelling misconceptions surrounding bats have been major aspects of his professional career. He has authored numerous scientific papers and books about Australian wildlife. His latest books include The Natural History of Australian Bats – Working the Night Shift and A Field Guide to Australian Mammals.
