Platypus in Cattai

This shy monotreme is known to live in the Cattai catchment however little is known about just how many there are. CHEN, in partnership with Western Sydney University, is testing for the platypus using eDNA technology.

Koalas in the Hills

Koalas are incredibly unique species. 10 years after a fire that severely reduced their population, the Hills Koalas have returned! They are frequently being spotted by residents. CHEN is committed to protecting them.
