Corroboree Frog makes a (albeit) small comeback.

By Thumper 11 January 2006 0

It’s obviously a hard life being a Corroboree Frog, what with bushfires, feral animals, changed environmental conditions and disease taking there toll.

Apparently this beautiful little creature is so endangered that it is believed that it could be extinct within five years time.

However [according to the Canberra Times], the boffins at Project Corroboree believe they have found a way to defeat the disease and have also managed to breed and release 100 of the little blokes back into the wilderness.

Apparently they were quick to ‘adapt to their new surroundings’.

Now that’s an excellent outcome.

Let us hope that we can do more for creatures as such and not let them go the way of the Thylacine, which, as everyone knows, is still reputed to haunt areas of Tasmania and Victoria but has been declared extinct for quite a while now. But that’s another story.
