Captain Cook Drive Flying-fox Camp
The Captain Cook Drive camp was discovered by Council in February 2017. It was likely to have established during the 2016-17 food shortage and has held up to 800 Grey-headed Flying-foxes. The camp is situated on Council land off Captain Cook Drive, opposite Elouera Rd Kurnell, and does not have any sensitive land uses in close proximity. This camp has not been occupied since August 2017. The following management actions have been undertaken at Captain Cook Drive:
- Developing procedures for the community if an encounter with a flying-fox should occur.
- Community engagement (ongoing).
- Preparation of a Camp Management Plan - currently being implemented
