Join us as we bring the platy-project to Canberra!
The Australian Conservation Foundation are hosting a nationwide citizen-science event in the month of September, and the ACF Canberra group are looking forward to bringing it to YOU!
ACF, in partnership with scientists at UNSW, are asking local groups and individuals to get out to their local waterways and try to spot platypus. This data will then give scientists a greater understanding of current platypus populations, and will contribute to broadening our knowledge of one Australia's most-loved native animals.
While the platypus can be very elusive, all data is useful, whether a platypus is sighted or not, and as such we are using this opportunity to explore Canberra's waterways.
All are welcome, there is no required level of experience or involvement in the group. We actively encourage new environmentalists and families at this event, it should be a lot of fun.
We will be meeting at the Corner of Jim Pike Avenue and Point Hut Rd, GORDON. We cannot wait to see you!
