In this webinar, you will find out more about platypus biology, population statistics on Merri Creek, its habitat requirements, and the ambitious and exciting plans by Merri Platypus Paddle to bring platypus back into the Merri, and how you can be a part of this. See the recording HERE.

Wurundjeri panel - featureSee a web version of these fabulous panels which celebrate the outstanding community achievement since 1975 in transforming Merri Creek from a weed-smothered drain to a much-loved waterway running through a bushland corridor: fronts of panels (17MB file); backs of panels (9MB file).

The two metre size panels were originally displayed at libraries and other public places throughout the Merri Creek catchment over 16 months until late 2016, in celebration of MCMC's 25th Anniversary.
