Easily recognised by their bright yellow and black stripes, probably only 50 Southern Corroboree Frogs remain in their alpine habitat, the Kosciusko National Park. The main threat to the Southern Corroboree Frog is the disease  Chytridiomycosis, caused by infection with Amphibian Chytrid Fungus. This is a big cause of frog deaths worldwide. Another issue is climate change, which is having an effect on the frog’s alpine home environment.

Zoos Victoria has developed successful captive breeding techniques for the Southern Corroboree Frog. There is also a system for reintroducing the eggs and tadpoles we’ve bred into the wild populations.

We continue to research the role of chytrid fungus in the decline of frog numbers.
