Yarra Bend Park Bats

Yarra Bend Park Bats

After being scared out of Melbourne's Botanic Gardens by crowds of noisy people, the bats made a home for themselves here, along the banks of the Yarra River in Kew. Bats play a role in seed and pollen dispersion of native plants but can be a problem due to their noise, smell and the dissemination of the deadly Australian Bat Lyssavirus.
