Did you know Wodonga is home to three species of turtles and also platypus?
Come along to this combined information session to find out more about these waterway residents and how you can support them locally.
Dr James Van Dyke from La Trobe University and Graham Stockfeld from Turtles Australia will discuss local turtle species as well as how to get involved in turtle monitoring and what we can each do to help look after turtles.
The platypus is a popular Australian icon. However, very little is known about how this unique mammal is faring across much of Victoria. A major study is now being launched to monitor platypus across north-east Victoria, including the upper reaches of the Ovens and Murray system. Local residents are invited to play a key role in keeping track of this fascinating monotreme.
Presented by the Australian Platypus Conservancy, those attending are invited to their Wodonga training session (on Friday morning at Gateway Island, Wodonga) in how to monitor their local platypus populations.
We’ll also provide some light supper!
