We’re in the studio, chatting with wildlife ecologist Joshua Griffiths (pictured here) & conservation photographer Doug Gimesy (photo credit) about threats to the platypus.  They also tell us about a nifty ‘citizen science’ initiative PlatypusSPOT, new technology that detects platypus DNA in waterways, and the Victorian Alliance for Platypus Safe Yabby Traps which has been formed with the objective of a complete ban on the enclosed yabby traps that kill platypus almost every day.  Josh & Doug advise us of actions we can all take to improve the chances of this unique & iconic animal.PlatypusSPOT website  http://platypusspot.org/PlatypusSPOT Facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/platypusSPOT/

A weekly show hosted by Melbourne-based animal advocates, presenting local and international interviews, presentations, and music from this vibrant social justice movement.
