DATE & TIME

Fri 1 Dec 2017

8:30AM - 3:00PM

Shoalhaven Landcare and Bundanon Trust have partnered to reintroduce the locally extinct Stuttering Frog into the Shoalhaven. Previously widespread throughout eastern NSW, the species is no longer found south of Sydney.

The Stuttering Frog was wiped out in southeastern NSW by the highly infectious Chytrid Fungus, an introduced disease which has decimated populations of Australian amphibians over the past two decades. To establish disease-free populations, chytrid-free individuals will be released at two sites in the Shoalhaven – Bundanon Trust’s Riversdale property and a private property along the Cambewarra Range.

Join us on Friday 1 December as a volunteer with the first Landcare working group of the project.
