Batman's studies ready to begin on the Fraser Coast
JOHN Parsons' studies into the Fraser Coast's micro bat population have has become official.
The bat lover, affectionately known as Batman, has helped put in place an environmental survey for micro bats.
"It's the biggest development in the Fraser Coast," he said with a smile.
With about 500 man-made micro bat homes now scattered around the region, John said the studies were finally ready to begin.
Next week on Friday and Saturday at the Discovery Sphere from 12.30pm both days, John will talk about how residents can help survey the micro bat population.
"When we begin the survey, if we don't find any, we'll just move on to another survey address," he said.
Once the survey has been conducted, John said a university research team would move in to find out exactly what species were present in the areas studied.
