Frog study volunteers wanted – Broughton Island Field trip opportunity

Here is a great opportunity for volunteers to join field trips to Broughton Island (North of Newcastle) to help a research project studying the impacts of climate change on frogs and their habitats. The study was started in 1998 and looks at frogs, tadpoles and the changes in their habitats.

 There are five trips between September 2017 and April 2018. Anyone interested should read the attached information and contact Professor Graham Pyke Graham.Pyke@uts.edu.au  0408-474-021
