August Is Platypus Month in the ACT Region

Upper Murrumbidgee Waterwatch, in partnership with the Australian Platypus Conservancy, is again hosting a Platypus Count Census Month over August and are encouraging everyone to head down to their local waterway and report any platypus sightings.

According to Geoff Williams from the Australian Platypus Conservancy (APC), platypus are quite active towards to end of winter as food becomes scarce so they spend more time feeding. This makes August a good time to get a snapshot of where platypus are found in the region. But we need your help!
