Description

Let’s keep our platy … happy!

The platypus is one of Australia’s most amazing animals. Unfortunately, there is growing evidence that its numbers are declining.

Threats to local platypus populations include human impacts on habitat and food sources (including opera house traps), invasive species, and climate change causing drought and loss of habitat.

Join our Adopt a Platypus program and you will be supporting our work for the survival of platypus and their habitat.

For a donation of $60 or more, you can symbolically ‘Adopt a Platypus’ for one year.

What do I receive?

If you choose, we will send you an information pack about platypus to share with your family and friends. The ‘Adoption’ also makes a great gift – so your valuable contribution gives not just once but twice.

Your adoption pack on platypus will include:

Information on activities and success stories of our PlatypusWatch Network can be found on this website and in Wildlife Queensland’s regular monthly my.Wildlife ebulletin.

Where does my money go?

Because your adoption is symbolic, donations to ‘Adopt a Platypus’ are used to fund on-ground conservation projects such as environmental DNA sampling surveys, survey equipment as well as state-wide campaigns to ban opera house traps and ensure that platypus and their habitat are taken into account in development planning processes.

Is my ‘adoption’ payment tax-deductible?

Yes.
