Microbats, a permaculture tool for Mosquito control and pollination, presented by John Parsons
John Parsons is an environmentalist and President of the Fraser Coast Microbats group. In this workshop you will learn about some of the 72 species of microbats in Australia. Did you know Microbats have been around for 50 million years and account for ⅔ of the worlds mammals? John will talk about the benefits that microbats have to our environment and in particular our garden. As their habitat trees are cut down we are losing these precious mammals from our environments. This is where we come in? We can install microbat boxes in our gardens and on our properties. You will learn how and where we can install boxes. Micro bats are being monitored for species and volume by the Environment Heritage Protection organisation.
