Earth Day April 22

platypus-hand-of-god.jpg

I’ve finally found the origin of this picture – it’s from the amazing images of the first platypuses born in captivity and the loving hands are those of Dr. David Fleay. His legacy lives on at the Healesville Platypus Sanctuary, Victoria to which a proportion of any proceeds from the aussie geocoin will be given. In many ways he was the Steve Irwin of his day in addition to being a scientist – even having a zoo in Queensland which is now run by the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency David Fleay Wildlife Park
