Watch scientists’ joy as rare platypus is released back into the wild

In a national reserve near Sydney, a platypus was reintroduced to the wild. This is the first platypus to be introduced in the park for 50 years.

This is one of several rare species that were collected in different locations throughout New South Wales to be tested and studied.

The platypus is a highly reclusive animal, and most Australians never see one in the wild. The platypuses are being tracked for the next 2 years.

The project is a collaborative effort between the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), Taronga Conservation Society Australia (TCSA), WWF-Australia and UNSW Centre for Ecosystem Science researchers.
