World Environment Day 2023 – Platypus Conservation Walk

May 30, 2023

Come and join us at 7am on Saturday June 10 in beautiful Petrie Creek, Nambour for ECOllaboration’s “Platypus Conservation Walk”.

The morning will begin with a short talk on local platypus hotspots and spotting techniques before trying our luck at finding a platypus at our most reliable known site in Nambour. We will then go on a short walk (500m) through Petrie Creek collecting rubbish on the way to planting (approximately 5 plants per participant) along the banks to stabilise the creek from erosion and preserve platypus habitat.

The event will finish with a complimentary coffee on behalf of ECOllaboration 🙌☕
