Virtual Excursions Australia is supporting the NSW Department of Education’s Rural Access Gap by providing discounted live virtual events available via DART Learning.


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Every night around sunset, a black cloud of thousands of flying foxes leave Centennial Park’s swamp to find food. Did you know that we humans depend on them as they help to spread pollen and seeds? Find out many fascinating facts about these incredible animals and how they help us survive! 

Learn more about the habitat provided for the Flying Foxes at Centennial Park, and what we are doing to ensure this vulnerable species thrives here.
