What? double click to change this header text! It was vulnerable since 1994, it became endangered since 1996 and became critically endangered since 2002. Where? The Corroboree Frog is a habitat specialist, restricted to montane and subalpine woodlands, heathland and grassland above about 1000m above sea level. Breeding sites are associated with shallow pools, fens, seepages, wet grassland, and wet heaths. Non-breeding habitat occurs in forest, woodland and heath adjacent to breeding sites. It breeds in shallow pools or seepages. Why? Because of an observed drastic population decline estimated to be more than 80% over the last ten years, and a projected decline of more than 80% over the next ten years. How? Perhaps due to chytridiomycosis, and because its area of occupancy is less than 10km2. Action? Jean-Marc Hero, Graeme Gillespie, Peter Robertson, Frank Lemckert 2004. Pseudophryne corroboree.
