Doug Gimesy's book Life Upside Down is published in October 2020 by Australian Geographic. This beautiful photographic children's book features Australia’s grey-headed flying-foxes. Each spread captures a new and exciting fact about these misunderstood animals and their topsy-turvy lifestyles. As Doug says, "we hope we designed it in a way that will engage and educate the next generation to better understand how wonderful flying-foxes are in their own right, as well as how important they are to the broader ecosystem and to the world in which we live."
