DPIE NPWS Wildlife Webinar Series - Flying fox initial assessment and care (Part 1)

About this Event

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) in collaboration with Wildlife Heroes are delivering a series of webinars for the volunteer wildlife rehabilitations sector across various topics on wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and wildlife health. The webinars provide an opportunity for volunteer wildlife rehabilitators to connect with professionals in the field and provide an update on developments and current best practice in wildlife health. The initial assessment and care of flying foxes is a two part series, presented by Dr Tania Bishop.

Part 1 of the flying fox initial assessment and care webinar will cover topics relevant to the rescue and initial assessment of flying foxes. Flying foxes are unique in terms of their anatomy and physiology and this affects how we approach the process from rescue to stabilisation until the animal can be referred to a qualified, vaccinated veterinarian or experienced flying-fox rehabilitator. In this webinar, Dr Tania Bishop will provide an introduction to flying fox anatomy/physiology, discuss techniques to safely rescue and handle flying foxes, detail how to perform an initial examination and provide first-aid in the initial period following rescue.
