With the end of season shut down at our release facility, Kukundi, we have been busy over the last few weekends carrying out maintenance work. This has included weeding, laying pavers for a new pathway, painting our fruit prep rooms and general cage maintenance.We will be opening both the adult cage and pup crèche cage again early January 2021. We still have adults in care from earlier this year that did not make it to our release cage and as pup season is in full swing, we will have pups around 12 weeks of ages that need to go into crèche in January.
There has been a steady number of pups coming into care so far this season. At the present moment I have 6 pups in care, ages ranging from 2 weeks old to 8 weeks old. The youngest is still on 5 milk feeds a day, whilst the oldest boy is now on an airer fulltime, self feeding milk and starting to really enjoy his fruit. He still however, still loves a cuddle from his “mum”.
Thank you so much for all your generous donations that enable us to continue to rescue, rehabilitate and release back into the wild our beautiful flying foxes. We couldn’t do it without your help.
