Artist's Description

The grey-headed flying fox, Pteropus poliocephalus, is a fruitbat native to Australia. Members of the genus Pteropus include the largest bats in the world. These belong to a local colony and now declared for listing as a Vulnerable species in NSW.
The grey-headed flying fox is now a prominent federal conservation problem in Australia. Early last century the species was considered abundant with numbers estimated in the many millions. However, in recent years, direct evidence has been accumulating that the species is in serious decline. Current estimates for the species are about 300,000 and it has been suggested that the national population may have declined by as much as 30% in the last decade alone.
