Flying-Fox Camps in Byron Shire

There are twelve known camps across Byron Shire.  Flying-foxes may occupy a camp for months or years.  Council are attempting to make a real effort to reduce conflict between residents and flying-foxes at five camps in Byron Shire including camps in Mullumbimby, Bangalow (Paddy’s Creek Camp), Byron Bay (including camps located at Butler Street and Middleton Street) and Suffolk Park (Beech Camp).

The Australian Government provides guidance on whether management actions at a flying -fox camp are 'controlled actions' under the EPBC Act. To read their policy statement click here
