Nature: The Platypus Guardian

Wed. Oct. 18 at 7 p.m.

This story is about an extraordinary man and a mysterious animal living on an island at the end of the world. Peter Walsh is a Tasmanian with no background in natural history, yet he has become obsessed with one of nature’s least understood and most unlikely creatures, the platypus.

Walsh is on a mission to observe and understand the animals and save them from urban development in Tasmania’s capital city of Hobart.

He has befriended one particular female he named Zoom. She lets him into her secretive world, and a relationship like no other develops. Walsh will reveal the life of this enigmatic creature, but his time is precious as he manages his own journey after a life-changing diagnosis.
