For the first time in half a century, the Royal National Park will have a population of platypus.
A new genetic study by UNSW scientists finds large dams restrict platypus movement, with significant implications for their conservation.
Climate change shouldn’t be used as a 'get out-of jail free' card to excuse bad decision-making and poor planning decisions.
Environmental survey findings confirm what scientists have suspected; platypuses aren’t in Royal National Park. But plans to reintroduce the iconic species to the park later this year will change this.
As the weather warms up, UNSW researchers name some of their favourite bushwalks and the ways citizen scientists can help them by collecting data along the way.
UNSW Sydney scientists are leading a project to bring the iconic mammal back to Royal National Park after almost 50 years.
We need to list one of the world’s most iconic animals as a threatened species, UNSW scientists say.
UNSW Sydney researchers have started a platypus monitoring study after they returned three of the iconic creatures to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, near Canberra.
UNSW scientists expect more platypus rescues in future as climate change takes a stranglehold on their natural habitat.
New UNSW research calls for national action to minimise the risk of the platypus vanishing due to habitat destruction, dams and weirs.
