Southern Pygmy Perch
This fish is listed as endangered in NSW and is protected in South Australia. It has been recorded throughout the Fiery Creek, especially in the lower reaches several years ago.
Platypuses have been recorded in the Fiery Creek as recently as in 2010, including in the reach between Streatham and Lake Bolac. They are more common further upstream. Recently there has been a growing call for the need to look after our platypuses.
