[Extract] Outbreaks of Hendra Virus in Queensland in recent years have resulted in a more responsive approach by government to the management of flying foxes. Queensland farmers have, for some time, been calling for measures to control flying foxes which affect their crops. Consequently, the Nature Conservation (Wildlife Management) Regulation 2006 was amended in 2012 to allow the killing of flying foxes under a damage mitigation permit ('DMP'), where flying foxes have caused damage to crops resulting in significant economic loss.

Additionally, a private members bill was introduced late in 2012 seeking to allow the cull of flying foxes on private land, and removing the Nature Conservation Act restrictions on disturbing flying fox roosts. The Bill has not yet passed.
