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.
