Helping to save the white-bellied frog

Mon, 27 Jul 2020

Western Australia’s most endangered frog species is the tiny white-bellied frog, found only in a handful of patches of stream habitat. Despite huge efforts from conservation managers, over the last 30 years half of the breeding populations have become extinct. PhD researcher Emily Hoffmann from the University of Western Australia talks about new research which seeks to discover why these tiny frog persist or perish on a tiny scale.

This Threatened Species Recovery Hub Project is a collaboration between the University of Western Australia, the Western Australian Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions Parks and Wildlife Service and Perth Zoo.
