Aim: 
To conduct a survey of all known Spectacled flying-fox (Pteropus conspicillatus) camps to estimate the current population size
Type of Study: 
Correlational
Key Results: 
There were about 153,000 spectacled flying foxes across the 12 major camps (low estimate = 120,000, high estimate = 180,000)
Treatments: 
NA
Response: 
There needs to be a development of non-lethal deterrence at orchards, followed by the development of methods for countering tick paralysis. Further annual censuses will be necessary to monitor population trends in comparison with me current baseline.
Models: 
None - raw counts
Comments: 
NA
Reviewer:

Response variable : 
Counts of species
Replication: 
12 camps
Ecosystem: 
Rainforest
