Heartwarming stories for two threatened iconic Alps species

Richard Snashall has produced two amazing documentaries on the plight of the mountain pygmy possum and the southern corroboree frog.

Discover how mountain pygmy possum numbers are picking up again in Kosciuszko National Park. Follow Dr Linda Broome and Haijing Shi as they survey possums near Cabramurra. Read more about the survey.

Find out how Dr David Hunter and staff from Melbourne and Taronga Zoos are releasing southern corroboree frog eggs back into the wild. The frog eggs are part of a captive breeding program at the zoos. Southern corroboree frog numbers are dwindling due to habitat destruction and the parasitic amphibian chytrid fungus so the release of these eggs will give them a fighting chance.
