Newsletter of the Australian Platypus Conservancy, "Platypus News & Views".

Edition no. 69 of Platypus News & Views, the newsletter of the Australian Platypus Conservancy, is attached.

In this edition we particularly focus on the problem of platypus deaths in opera house nets and other types of enclosed yabby traps including:
  • Why the APC is now calling for a complete ban on enclosed traps after extensive trials to find a 'platypus-safe' trap. 
  • Some myths about opera house traps. 
  • How to get more information about this problem on our website and Facebook. 
  • How you can help to call for a ban. 
  • On a brighter note, there is also an article about the best time of the year to look for platypus (the good news is that it is now!).

Your are welcome to reproduce any of the material from PN&V for non-profit, educational purposes, subject to acknowledgement of the APC as the source.
