Our very own Jack Rojahn was featured recently in the Canberra Times for his work on Corrobboree frogs. Corrobboree frogs are small, endangered amphibians that are difficult to monitor in the wild. Traditional methods of surveillance rely on the shout-response method to detect mature males (>3 years) during the breeding season. Thus, detection of females and early life stages (juveniles/eggs) require other detection tools which can be damaging to the environment or cause undue stress to the animals. Jack led the development of an eDNA assay that was proven to be sensitive and specific to corroboree frogs, and useful for non-invasive post-release survival of translocated populations in the wild.
