SOUTH Gippsland Landcare Network is establishing a register of landowners who want to restore water frontages for platypuses.

The group is calling for expressions of interests to be included on the register so it can act quickly when funding opportunities arise.

One of the easiest ways to help threatened or endangered species is to create suitable habitat for them on your property, SGLN said on its Facebook page.

“We are establishing a register of property owners and managers who are keen to build or enhance bio links on their properties for koalas, birds and other wildlife, and to restore creek, stream and river frontages for platypus.”

Registering is easy and commitment-free. Click here.
