Come along, celebrate the launch of Platypus Month. Learn about how researchers from Western Sydney University and a local environment community group, Cattai Hills Environment Network (CHEN) discovered platypus.

Learn about what we are doing now to help preserve this population, and how you can get involved. Discover the story of ‘Bluey’ the platypus. Dive deep into interesting facts about our iconic and unique platypus population. Hear about the current research work to help protect this species.
