This web site has been developed by an alliance of concerned individuals. We are motivated by conservation and animal welfare, not by politics. We support policies that are pro-conservation and humane, and oppose policies that threaten our wildlife and the integrity of our natural environment. There is a list here of the organisations which share these concerns, and who endorse an NGO statement about the protection and conservation of flying-foxes.
Our objectives, values and code of conduct are summarised in the Don't Shoot Bats Charter. A PDF version is available for download from this page.
About This Site
We have made a concerted effort on this site to present facts based on research, published papers, government policies and law. We believe it should concern all Australians that the proponents of lethal methods of crop protection ignore overwhelming factual evidence, focusing on myths, fears and uninformed opinion.
