Thank you for choosing to become a Zoo Parent for the unique Platypus.

The unique Platypus is set to decline in numbers by at least 50% over the next 50 years. Your important decision to adopt them today will help fund rescue and research at world first Platypus facilities in Sydney and Dubbo. Thank you.
