This month sees another push to ensure the survival of a local endangered species.
Nearly one thousand more eggs of the tiny endangered Southern Corroboree Frog will be deposited at various locations around Kosciuszko National Park.
There's been a rapid decline of the yellow and black frog since the 1980s, and at one stage there were just nine males in the wild.
The deposit is part of a recent joint program between Melbourne and Taronga Zoos and the Healesville Sanctuary that hopes to strengthen numbers of the alpine frog in the wild.
Representatives from Taronga Zoo say that the primary danger to them from is the introduced Chytrid fungus, that damaged their skin and the way they intake oxygen.blog comments powered by Disqus
