We are a community group in Australia working for the conservation of bats and their habitat. Our activities began in 1990, the year tick paralysis was discovered in flying foxes on the Atherton Tablelands. We originally worked with the Spectacled flying foxes resident at the Tolga Scrub, and hence our name. We now work with any bat, megabat or microbat, from anywhere. Bats come to us for rescue from hundreds of kilometres away, and we also take bats for sanctuary who are being retired from zoos. We became incorporated in 2002 as a not-for-profit community group, listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations in 2007, and a registered charity in 2008. This enables us to accept tax-deductible donations. In 2009 we opened the Visitor Centre.
