Platy-Project: Spot and record a platypus
Let's spot and record a platypus to report our findings to the University of New South Wales and learn more about this unique creature!
Time & Location
13 Feb 2022, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Foster, 8 Main St, Foster VIC 3960, Australia
About The Event
The platy-project is an ACF project that PACA are participating in related to sighting and recording platypus throughout the Monash Federal Electorate.
By recording where platypuses live we can understand more about this incredible creature, and help prevent further declines in their numbers.
That’s where you can help. There are places within the platypus’ range where sightings have never been recorded, or where they haven’t been seen for a long time. These are our biggest gaps in knowledge.
You can help researchers fill these gaps by visiting priority areas, looking for platypuses, and uploading your findings to the University of New South Wales’ platypus sighting database.
