Platypus Whispers

with Neil Andison

Join Neil Andison (aka the Platypus Whisperer) for an informative talk about local platypus populations in the Obi Obi Creek, Maleny.

Neil is a passionate conservationist who has an in-depth understanding of the Australian Platypus (one of the world's only two Monotremes).

Neil has been studying and photographing Platypus every day along the Obi Obi for over a decade. He has collaborated with researchers and photographers to acquire a deeper understanding of their behaviour, habitat and range.

Come and hear more about this fascinating species and how we, as a community, can ensure its survival in the wild into the future.

When: Wednesday the 27th of July

Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Venue: Maleny District Sport & Recreation Club, Parklands Drive (off Porters Lane) North Maleny

Members: Free

Non-members: $10

Please note that the Platypus viewing platform is just a short walk from the venue. You may like to go down there prior to the talk at your own leisure to see if you can spot a platypus!
