Green Army to clean up after bats

Preparations are being made to deliver two new Green Army projects promised during the Federal election campaign. The projects will focus on cleaning up areas at Batemans Bay to reduce the chance to massive numbers of flying foxes returning to the centre of town, and protecting and preserving the environment around Seven Mile Beach, Comerong Island and Bundanon. The next step in reducing Batemans Bay’s flying fox problem is about to kick into gear, with Eurobodalla Shire Council invited to apply for a Green Army project to clean up the Watergardens area. “The work in Batemans Bay is vital to cleaning up the area around Watergardens, to make it more tolerable for residents in the area, and help prevent grey-headed flying foxes returning in such damaging numbers,” said Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis. Mrs Sudmalis said the Green Army program had a strong focus on achieving real and practical environmental and heritage conservation outcomes. “At the same time we must not neglect the fact that many Green Army Projects have developed work skills, team work and employment outcomes.
