Platypus Monitoring Program
Project Platypus was established in 1994 when it became obvious that the huge land and water degradation problems in the area were too extensive to be managed by individual landholders and Landcare groups. Project Platypus acts as an umbrella organisation for the eleven Landcare groups of the Upper Wimmera Catchment to deliver large scale projects.
PROJECT PLATYPUS PLANTOUT 2016
Project Platypus’s annual Plantout is a series of 4 weekend events held on different landholder’s properties over July in which volunteers gather to plant native vegetation in specially selected areas to address a number of environmental issues ranging from salinity, to soil erosion and habitat loss. Planting these trees will help rehabilitate the landscape and make it more productive for farming whilst protecting remnant vegetation and creating greater biodiversity in an effort to create more habitat for native wildlife.
