Australia\’s Vanishing Frogs



Join Associate Professor Michael Mahony from the University of Newcastle and explore the fertile mountain forests of Australia’s Hunter region, collecting data that will help scientists understand how our frog populations might cope or flounder as they encounter chytrid infections. In the past Earthwatch volunteers have contributed to the exciting discovery of four new species of frog and have identified both healthy and struggling frog populations. Teams are now needed to find out why some frogs are dying while others are flourishing.
