August is Platypus Month!

Did you know that August is a great time to see platypus in the ACT region? Waterwatch runs activities in August to help everyone understand more about these marvellous monotremes.

JOIN US FOR A FREE PLATYPUS WALK: Waterwatch runs free platypus walk at the Isabella St Footbridge in Queanbeyan (a platypus hotspot!) during August. No RSVP necessary.

 

TAKE PART IN A PLATYPUS GROUP SURVEY: Waterwatch conducts surveys during August in waterways such as the Jerrabomberra wetlands or on the Murrumbidgee River. This is to help us better understand their resident platypus populations.  No experience necessary.

 

REPORT PLATYPUS SIGHTINGS: Waterwatch encourages everyone to head down to their local waterway- at any time of the year - and report platypus sightings. Information such as date, time, location and  number of platypus need to be noted. Send details to waterwatch@act.gov.au
