I am pleased to attach the current edition of Platypus News & Views (no. 81, August 2020). Don't miss the great photo on page 4 of a water-rat/rakali feeding in the water - showing just why these fabulous animals are the Aussie equivalent of the otter.
In this edition you can also read about:
- How new legislation potentially strengthens protection for the Platypus in Victoria.
- New insights into what goes on in platypus nursery burrows.
- Tips on recognising rakali.
- Status of the rollout of APMN (Australian Platypus Monitoring Network - see www.platypusnetwork.org.au) and a details of short platypus conservation video produced in partnership with Holbrook Landcare network.
