Event Information

The platypus is widely recognised as one of the world’s most unusual animals – a mammal that reproduces by laying eggs and possesses a unique ‘sixth sense’ in its
remarkable bill. By comparison, relatively few people know that the Australian water-rat (Hydromys chrysogaster) is a genuine native that was a natural part of our environment long before the arrival of its rodent pest cousins - the black rat and brown rat. The water-rat (also known as rakali) possesses a thick coat of soft fur, splendid whiskers, blunt muzzle, partly webbed hind feet, and furry tail, all helping to create a resemblance to a
miniature otter.

Geoff Williams from the Australian Platypus Conservancy will outline the biology of these two fascinating species in a webinar on Wednesday 4 August at 6pm. He’ll also
provide tips on how to go about spotting them in the wild and explain how paddlers can play a vital role in keeping track of local rakali and platypus numbers.
