Gecko Talks-Bats Are Beneficial-24th February in Currumbin RSL
Speaking of bats, many believe these nocturnal animals carry and bring disease; but according to Maria Nicolae of Bats Queensland this is a myth. “On the contrary”, she says, “bats are extremely useful and play an important ecological role. Flying foxes are the long distance nocturnal pollinators of Australia’s hard wood forests and microbats keep harmful insects at bay by eating them.”
Maria, who is the Education Coordinator for Bats Queensland (and who is also a Law Professor at Bond University), will speak at Gecko Talks on February 24th at Currumbin RSL.
