Fighting to Save the Tiny Frog

Thursday 24th September / posted by Chris Wheeldon

If you haven’t seen a white-bellied frog lately,  you’d be forgiven…

Not only are they tiny, and only hang out in the South-West, but the WA species is critically endangered.

Years of fires, feral pigs, tree felling and cannabis being planted in their habitats has ruined their homes.

For the past five years, Perth Zoo has been working on a special program to boost frog numbers.

Perth Zoo Director of Animal Health and Research, Dr Peter Mawson, has been part of it and he called into Breakfast with Caitlin to tell us more.
