In this edition of Park Watch, we share a diverse range of nature-based learning projects, events and activities.

This includes an in-depth look at environmental education and citizen science, as well as learning the lessons from the Little Desert, and findings from a study on the effects of urbanisation on a tiny bird species in Melbourne.

Our stunning cover image points to our feature article shedding light on the tragic but largely unavoidable deaths of an iconic species – the platypus.

And as always we cover the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
