Come along and hear about platypus and have
a discussion with Dr Melody Serena about
local streams and what you know about
platypus numbers in the Upper Murray.
The low flows in local streams during recent years prompted the Network to do preliminary surveys last year to try to establish a bench mark for platypus numbers.
This has lead to the beginning of a 2 year platypus survey in local streams in the Upper Murray, working with the Australian Platypus Conservancy.
These groups have committed to a two year platypus program with a real possibility of an on-going program.
The program will entail the Platypus Conservancy visiting in early October to hold an information session and two group platypus surveys over two days.
This session includes a free BBQ for attendees.
