Infamous Tumut #Corroboreefrog

More than 350 Southern Corroboree Frogs were released into the wilds of Kosciuszko National Park last week as part of a massive effort to save this critically endangered species. The zoo-bred frogs were transported by helicopter and released into newly-built disease-free enclosures in a joint project involving Taronga, @zoosvictoria, @nswenvironmentandheritage and @nswnationalparks 🐸 #corroboreefrog #forthewild #worldfrogday

Up early this morning to work out how to play this little tune.. 🐸 🎸

Tiny southern corroboree frog, made from a leaf! Cute craft to (hopefully) encourage kids to learn about the biology of this fascinating critically endangered Aussie amphibian, and the impressive conservation efforts of scientists to save them. #corroboreefrog #naturecrafts #naturelover #biology

Who's your safari guide today?
Yesterday #robthefrog tried his luck, with a big crowd waiting for him. Unfortunately his feet didn't reach the pedals.

So I've spent my evening updating my Etsy store, and adding new items! I created this Corroboree Frog Lino print for an exhibition on Extirpation: Local Extinction. It is an edition of ten pulled onto A3 paper (1/10 sold already). For the remainder of the editions, 30% of the sale price will be donated to Corroboree Conservation so you get art, and to help conserve the beautiful creatures. #australiannative #corroboreefrog #printmaking #canberra #canberraartist #meetingplaceact #etsyauseller

Some of the beautiful works at @extirpation_event2017 I forgot to grab a picture of the third wall! But seriously, fan girl moment when I walked in to see my sun moth sitting up next to @cherylhodgesartist 's beautiful leek orchid. #australiannative #moth #sunmoth #corroboreefrog #extirpationevent2017 #printmaking #canberra #canberraartist

Wow! The #extirpationevent2017 was lovely, for the portion I could attend. We missed the panel discussion as we had to collect our small humans but we'll don't to all that organized and contributed. @extirpation_event2017 #australiannative #moth #sunmoth #corroboreefrog #extirpationevent2017 #printmaking #canberra #canberraartist

Meet the Northern Corroboree Frog (Pseudophryne pengilleyi)! This species is listed as endangered in the ACT and critically endangered nation-wide. It is found in montane and sub-alpine woodlands, heathlands and grasslands.

The Northern Corroboree Frog has alternating stripes of yellow-ish green and black down its back. It has yellow, black, and white blotches on its underside. Tadpoles are dark brown to black and begin to show adult colour patterning as their legs develop. Adults grow to 2.5-3cm.

Females respond to the calls of males and visit breeding areas from January to March. Here they lay 20-30 eggs in nests on land. Tadpoles move out of the nest into nearby pools of water to develop (a process called metamorphosis). Northern Corroboree Frogs have experienced declines in population due to damage to breeding sites, loss of breeding pools due to climate change, and disease caused by chytrid fungus. Chytrid fungus is the primary cause of population decline in many Australian frog species.

Something different, inspired by Extirpation, and requested regularly by my boys, a Corroboree Frog in the making. I'm usually a bugs and flowers gal so we'll see how this goes... #australiannative #corroboreefrog #frog #extirpationevent2017 #printmaking #canberra #canberraartist #meetingplaceact #linoprinting #linoprint #linocut #get_imprinted

Plico designed alterations to the Melbourne Zoo Keeper Kids Workspace which are now complete. Children can observe the Zoo Keepers preparing the actual food that is provided to the animals. The children then 'prepare' food for the toy animals in the adjacent play space. An exhibit accommodates the tiny and endangered Corroboree Frog
