In edition 75 of Platypus News & Views, copy attached below, the newsletter of the Australian Platypus Conservancy, you can read and also about the Australian Platypus Monitoring Network - an important new 'next-gen' citizen science program which will allow local communities to keep track of their platypus. The new APMN website - www.platypusnetwork.org.au - is scheduled to be online from Wednesday 6 March.
Roll-out of the Australian Platypus Monitoring Network (APMN) has just started, with a very successful series of workshops and training sessions recently held at Benalla, Alexandra, Yea and Seymour in Victoria, sponsored by Goulburn Broken CMA. If you are interested in potentially supporting a ‘roll-out’ project in your area, please don't hesitate to contact the Conservancy.
