Platypus Discovery: Education and Citizen Science Session

August 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Interested in learning more about one of Australia’s iconic species or joining PlatypusWatch to monitor wild platypus populations?

Join us during Platypus Month to learn everything you need to know about these unique mammals. This session will cover all aspects of platypus history, biology, behaviour, food sources, habitats, threats and citizen science activities occurring in Logan.

Now more than ever, our local platypus population needs your help! With increased urbanisation and natural disasters, platypus populations are under threat.

Find out in this workshop how you can help contribute to research data by signing-up to become a citizen scientist as part of our PlatypusWatch* survey program. With your help we can monitor wild populations and ensure their survival for future generations!

Important information:

  • Registrations required for all attendees – spaces are limited!
  • Recommended for children 10 years and over – parent/guardian supervision required.
  • If you can no longer attend, please cancel your booking via Eventbrite to free up your place to those who are on the waiting list. Alternatively, contact the Councils Environment Team on (07) 3412 4491 or [email protected].
