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.
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.
Declines in platypus have likely been underestimated, new research by UNSW scientists has shown.
Scientists are worried about the platypus, with a national risk assessment led by UNSW Professor Richard Kingsford suggesting declines of up to 30%.
