Flying-foxes have been seasonal visitors to the Royal Botanic
Gardens. At night these large bats feed on the flowers and
fruits of many native plants, being important in pollinating
flowers and dispersing seeds of these plant species.
from time to time the bats try to set up camp in the Gardens, as
can be seen by looking around the Palm Grove, in the Sydney
Royal Botanic Gardens. However, these bats are damaging the
trees that they are roosting in, which will result in permanent
damage to the trees.
