Sloane's Froglet

Sloane’s Froglet is an endangered species with a very restricted distribution in NSW. The largest remaining populations in NSW occur in the Corowa and Thurgoona-Wirlinga areas. The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, Corowa District Landcare and Woolshed Thurgoona Landcare groups are coordinating a community-based Sloane’s Froglet survey and monitoring program, known as Sloane's Champions.

NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), Federation Council and Corowa District Landcare have joined forces to launch the community-based initiative, Sloane’s Champions. This program has been running in Albury with great success and is now being expanded to include Corowa.

Community members are being asked to assist in the surveying and monitoring of Sloane’s Froglet. The data that is collected will help plan and prioritise conservation work for this tiny frog to secure its long-term future in NSW.

Sloane's Champions is open to anyone interested in undertaking survey and monitoring work using the Frog ID App to help secure the future of this Froglet. Download the Frog ID App and join the group "Sloane's Champions" to start conducting surveys in our local wetlands, dams, roadsides and anywhere there is water for a period of time over the winter months.
