The indirect threats to platypus are dealt with in the Animal Justice Party (AJP) policies on diet and population. In particular, our food policies allow us to halt and reverse our appropriation of wildlife habitat even if Australia’s human population increases.
1. Establish school education programs to explain the threats to platypus and what to do about them.
2. An immediate ban on yabby traps. In particular, this implies a ban on the sale (not just the setting) of any type of trap that has the potential to kill platypus.
