Frogs in Holbrook

Over the past few years the number and diversity of frog species has increased in the Holbrook area, as wetlands, creeks and dams have begun filling with water again. The calls of breeding frogs has increased and caused interest in the community. This led to Holbrook Landcare Network, in conjunction with Alex Knight from CSU Albury, to survey the frog populations in the area and investigate their habitats.
