Commonwealth Submission – Threat Abatement Plan (Chytrid Fungus)

Kellehers Australia has become involved in growth area planning and, particularly, in issues concerning the Listed Endangered Species Litoria raniformis (Growling Grass Frog). The frog currently faces significant risk brought about by the Chytrid Fungus. It is said by DEPI that use of groundwater may control this fungus threat.
