Northern Corroboree Frog recovery program

Drivers for Adaptation Action 
Changes to rainfall regimes and river flows, and severe population decline over the last two decades leading to concerns over their future survival in the wild. The endanged Northern Corroboree Frog (Pseudophryne pengilleyi) is threatened by chytrid fungus.
Outcomes Achieved 

As part of the National Recovery Program for the Corroboree Frog and the ACT Action Plan for the northern species, a captive husbandry program has commenced at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. The program involves collecting eggs from the wild and raising them in captivity to mature frogs, which dramatically increases the survival rates of these individuals.
