Spot & Record a Platypus event - Part of the Platy Project
Sunday 13th February, 3.00pm - 6.00pm at Pearl Park, Main Street Foster
Please check in and show your vaccination certificate at our marquee.
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.
We will be endeavouring to spot and record the elusive platypus. We will be holding further events during the year so if we don’t see one this time, there will be other opportunities.
Please bring your camera, binoculars, notebook and pen, long pants, sturdy shoes, hat, sunscreen and water
Please note that all attendees need to be double vaccinated against COVID-19
