There are over 85 species of bats native to Australia.  Bats account for a third of the continent's native mammal species.  Nearly half of these bats are on the endangered or threatened species list.

The Greater Wart-nosed Horseshoe-bat and the Greater Large-eared Horseshoe Bat are endangered species.  The Grey Headed Flying Fox is now on the vulnerable species list -- all flying foxes are fruit eating bats.

Other Australian bats (many of them threatened species) include the Little Red Flying Fox, the Large Eared Flying Fox, the Spectacled Flying Fox, the Large-eared Pied Bat, the Eastern Long-eared Bat, the Pilbara Leaf-nosed Bat and the Southern Bent-wing Bat.
