Platypeople Are Awesome
Protect the Platypus
A Little Info
Even though Platypodes (another plural form of platypus) were officially protected in 1905, the animal was still receiving heavy casualties from things such as being caught in nets, hunted for pelts, etc.
The species was further protected in 1950, but still it is threatened, mostly by pollution now, rather than poaching. So pitch in, help, and we can still say "Oh there you are, Perry," at the end of the day.
