Grey-headed Flying-fox Foraging Habitat

Mapping of the foraging habitat areas of the Grey-headed Flying-fox in New South Wales. The Grey-headed Flying-fox is listed as a threatened species under state and Commonwealth legislation. The key threatening process for the species is loss of foraging habitat, and recovery actions aim to identify and protect key foraging areas. This project defined foraging habitat for Grey-headed Flying-foxes, ranked native vegetation within the range of the species according to the quality of foraging habitat it provides.; ; This merged shapefile contains topology errors where there was overlapping of vegetation datasets. The attribute table however contains the original codes and detailed information, and it may be useful to use in conjunction with the grid. The recommendation is to use the grid layer of the same name. This was how it was originally meant to be supplied externally - as a broad indicative layer displaying the rankings.
