After an incredible fundraiser and event, here are all our lucky Platypus winners!

The Platypuses have landed!

Our inaugural Great Platypus Drop on August 21, 2021, was a huge success! Over 4,800 platypuses were adopted by loving families and then dropped from a giant crane in Swanson Park in Albany. Check out the event day pics by Izabela Mattson, and scroll down to meet our lucky raffle winners!
