About the Show
The Baw Baw Frog, endemic to the Mt Baw Baw plateau in the Central Highlands of Victoria – now have an estimated wild population of less than 500.
Climate change and the infectious disease Chytrid Fungus have devastated species like the Baw Baw Frog across Victoria and around the world. Hear from experts working in the field in a race against the clock to prevent the extinction of local frog species. From bushfires to climate change, find out how they are working together with partners to tackle the many challenges that come with wildlife conservation.
Bring your questions! There will be a Q & A session at the end of the event with the panel.
