SAVE OUR PLATYPUS & THEIR PRECIOUS HOMES
Many Australian animals are unusual in their own way. But the platypus is totally unique of them all. They’re mammals that lay eggs and have a bill and flippers, which is an amazing evolutionary feat. But in the last 150 to 200 years, they’ve come under threat.
The changing climate, new dams, the over-extraction of water from rivers, landclearing, attacks by foxes and dogs, pollution and suburban sprawl present serious new threats to the platypus.
The platypus is facing a silent extinction. Take action now to protect them and their habitat.
Adopting a platypus today will help research and monitor their populations across eastern states and implement a unique rewilding program to reintroduce healthy platypus back into areas where they once thrived.
Your generosity will help bring back vital populations from the brink of extinction and ensure local ecosystems are able to remain healthy.
