Australia To House World's First Platypus Sanctuary Near Sydney

Australia will soon build the world's first sanctuary housing platypuses to support their breeding and rehabilitation, considering their nearing extinction provoked by climate change. Reportedly, the concerns about platypus escalated in light of the damage caused by the recent bushfires. The Taronga Conservation Society and the New South Wales government have vowed to establish the refuge by 2022 at a zoo near Sydney. With ponds and burrows, the facility will nurture about 65 platypuses.
