Amphibians the world over are disappearing and, here in Far North Queensland, we are one of the world's "hot spots" for frog decline with several high-altitude species already feared extinct. On the coastal lowlands, species previously thought to be very common and secure are also losing ground rapidly. This is what is meant by 'frog decline' and it can apply to any frog species - not just those which are already classified as 'endangered' or 'rare'.
Frogsafe is based at Mission Beach. we assist incoming frogs from Townsville northwards plus assist holders of sick and injured frogs around the country using long-distance consults.
The Department of Environment and Science recognises the enormous value a clean environment, innovative society and economy, and vibrant culture makes to our lives. As a diverse organisation, the department brings together key areas of work to achieve our objectives for a better Queensland. Our responsibilities relating to the environment:: - protect and manage our parks, forests and the Great Barrier Reef for current and future generations - enhance Queensland’s ecosystems - protect significant heritage places - avoid, minimise or mitigate impacts to the environment.
