Council crusaders go in to bat for Lake Mac flying foxes

A Lake Macquarie City Council revegetation project is providing new roosting and feeding sites for thousands of flying foxes, luring the noisy mammals further away from nearby properties.


The project at Blackalls Park began in 2019 on what was once a citrus orchard off Fennell Crescent, overgrown with weeds and home to an estimated 5000 flying foxes during peak times.
