Monitoring rainforest frogs in Gondwana Rainforest

As climate change increasingly impacts our native habitats, it is imperative that scientists monitor the health of these ecological sites to help conserve them for the future. In the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests, NPWS is conducting an extensive observation program for ancient frogs, which are indicator species for high altitude rainforest.
