This report forms the 2001-2002 annual review of the draft NPWS policy and procedures for
the mitigation of commercial crop damage by flying-foxes. It presents a statewide summary of
licensed activity over the last fruit-growing season and draws comparison with previous
seasons to further enhance understanding of flying-fox distribution and the impact, both on the
farming community and on the flying-fox population. Recommendations are made to amend
the policy where necessary.
