Grey-Headed Flying-Fox (Pteropus poliocephalus)
I have been studying and photographing the grey-headed flying-foxes in the Sydney area for the last 15 years. These magnificent endemic Australian mammals suffer from persecution as well as the impact of global warming. Recent years’ heat waves have killed a significant part of the wild population. They need our urgent help.
