Desalination Plant Flying-fox Camp
The Desalination Plant camp was regularly occupied over summer up until 2006-07 summer, when the desalination plant was constructed and the flying-foxes moved to the Kareela reserve and formed the Kareela camp. After 10 years, during the 2016-17 food shortage, this camp was found to be occupied by up to 400 flying-foxes. The camp is situated on Desalination Plant property and does not have any sensitive land uses in close proximity. Veolia are responsible for the management of this flying-fox camp in accordance with a Conservation Management Plan for the site.
