Australia’s Iconic Platypus Faces Extinction Threat Due to Climate Change and Human Activity.⠀
According to a new study published in the journal Biological Conservation this month, the severe drought conditions and heat, combined with habitat loss and other impacts of human activities, are pushing one of Australia’s most enigmatic and iconic endemic species, the duck-billed platypus, toward extinction.⠀ We can’t let that happen!
