Frogs Facing Fateful Future

Freddie the frog at Flamingo land Zoo is a White's tree frog from Northeast Australia, Indonesia and the surrounding islands. Unlike many frogs, his species is not threatened but, globally, amphibian decline is widespread for a number of reasons.

Increased global transport has led to the spread of fungal diseases deadly to frogs and other amphibians, most notably chytrid fungus. This is thought to infect 30% of all amphibian species.

This week sees her final quarantine health check by our vet Matt Brash. Once all the results of this final check come back we will be able to introduce her to her new partner and her new island...
