PlatypusWatch Online Induction

July 31 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Complete the PlatypusWatch induction to learn everything you need to know about the unique platypus and how to survey them correctly.

PlatypusWatch has been monitoring Gold Coast platypus populations for over 11 years with the help of hundreds of Gold Coast volunteers. The data collected helps us to monitor their behaviour, their reponse to potential threats such as urban development and extrememe weather events, and provides us with an early warning system to prevent another extintion event which was sadly witnessed in Tallebudgera Creek.

 

This workshop will educate you on platypus history, their fascinating biology and some of their most significant threats. You will also be taught how to correctly identify a platypus and the proper methodology for platypus surveying.

 

Once you have completed this induction you can jopin the PlatypusWatch family and join us in surveying platypus twice annually accross the Gold Coast, as well contributing to our daily survey research for the Platypus365 Project.

 

This event will take place online, please register your attendance so we know how many to expect and we hope to see you at one of our surveys soon!

 

PlatypusWatch is supported and funded by the City of Gold Coast.
