Corroboree frog breeding makes a breakthrough

By johnboy - 26 July 2009 4

The ABC brings word that the ACT’s corroboree frog breeding program has managed to produce 1,000 eggs which is apparently something they haven’t been able to do before.

Considering there are only 200 left in the wild it’s a giant leap.

What’s Your opinion?

Wouldnt it be a bad thing if these 1000 frogs bred with each other? Id imagine some nasty inbreeding traits could develop if these frogs are left to breed with each other. With luck theyll have success breeding more eggs from other surviving wild animals to help even out the population.
