Craig Cleeland - A Southern Toadlet Story - Frogs Vic August 2022
Join Craig Cleeland, self-confessed Southern Toadlet groupie who has been studying the species for over 20 years, for an immersion into this rapidly declining frog, with particular reference to Greater Melbourne. Craig will explore the dynamics of a population of Southern Toadlets in an effort to understand more about their breeding biology and life history. He will also report on at the results of toadlet occupancy surveys in the Shire of Nillumbik in 2018, along with data from four years of intensive surveys of the last remaining populations in the outer urban areas of Melbourne.
Spoiler alert: we're warned the ending's not great and not to expect too many answers!
