Fresh Bid to Save Endangered Frog


More than three-thousand eggs from the critically endangered SOUTHERN CORROBOREE FROG have been released in the Kosciuszko National Park.


The release of the eggs is hoped to rejuvenite the species… bring them back from the brink of extinction..


Most in the Kosciouszko region were wiped out in recent bushfires.


The eggs are tiny – many are half the size of a finger nail.. when they grow, the get to be the size of a 20-cent coin, and were listed as critically endangered in 2009.


It’s thought there are only about 50 of the amphibians remaining in the wild.


Amphibian specialists will keep a close eye on how the eggs and frogs survive.
