Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Activities

Platypus Watch

Have you ever seen a Platypus in the wild?

Platypus have been recorded in Logan but we do not know their population or how this may be changing over time. We need more information to help us manage the conservation of this unique animal.

We have partnered with the Gold Coast Catchment Association to introduce PlatypusWatch. This exciting new program includes:

  • workshops to teach you about Platypus, how to look for and record them, and how to assess habitat.
  • regular Platypus monitoring and recording events (called surveys).
  • events such as children’s Platypus craft and information sessions.

If you would like to help us to conserve the platypus, please join us by getting involved. Everyone is welcome.

For more information please contact the Gold Coast Catchment Association by emails at info@goldcoastcatchments.org

MangroveWatch

If you'd like to give the environment a helping hand, learn or develop skills or spend time with like-minded people - why not get on board and help monitor the Logan and Albert river's mangroves?

MangroveWatch is an exciting citizen science program that partners community volunteers with university researchers to photograph, film and document mangroves in various locations around Queensland.  A community driven Logan River MangroveWatch group is being established with the support of the Logan City Council EnviroGrants program, the Wildlife Preservation Society of QLD, Jacob's Well Environmental Education Centre and James Cook University.

For more information please contact Debra Henry, Wildlife Preservation Society by phone 3221 0194 or debrahenry@wildlife.org.au.
