About SELS FrogLab Vacation Scholarship

Three summer grants are available from the School of Environmental and Life Sciences (SELS) for students who show a strong interest in and dedication to conservation biology. This offers an opportunity to take part in a learning experience on Kooragang Island as part of the monitoring program for the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frogs.

Because of significant reductions in amphibian populations around the world, research into the successful conservation of amphibians is becoming increasingly important. The green and golden bell frog was originally a common species in the area, but its range has shrunk significantly, and it is now categorized as a threatened species.
