The monitoring of three Wallum (or acid) frogs that was established by the BIEPA-coordinated, 2008 Caring for Our Country Coastcare project, is continuing under the auspices of the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) scientists Harry Hines and Ed Meyer. The Wallum Sedge Frog Litoria olongburensis is the focus of the monitoring. Four sites in the Bribie Island National Park are monitored every 3 months and on exceptional occasions such as immediately after fires. Each site takes about 2 hours to monitor and monitors can end up quite wet. Volunteers assist the scientists and should you wish to partake of this experience please contact Alan on email at alankerr2@bigpond.com.
