The Southern Myotis is Australia’s only fishing bat. It requires creekside vegetation and catches water insects and the smallest fish. The Southern Myotis benefits from the retention of native riparian vegetation that offers roosting sites and enjoy waterbodies with good water quality.

We will be designing community based projects around the Southern Myotis based on our Ecological Health Report and existing research programsSign up to our newsletter to stay informed, or regularly check back in here.
