Corroboree Frog – Vivid Sydney

Beyond the Wharf has teamed up with Vivid Sydney to help celebrate Taronga Zoo’s centenary. This year for Vivid, you’ll find eight zoo animals depicted in LED lights: 8 critical species that the zoo has dedicated to conserve.

One of the species depicted is the Corroboree Frog.

There are as few as 50 Corroboree Frogs left in the wild.  These tiny frogs, well known for their striking appearance, have suffered an alarming decline as a result of chytrid fungus. Found only in a small area of the beautiful Kosciuszko National Park and adjacent ranges, these little amphibians need our help to have a chance of surviving in the wild.

For Corroboree Frogs, for the next 10 years

Taronga is committed to saving this striking frog through their large research and breeding program, having already successfully released hundreds of frogs and thousands of eggs to prevent the extinction of this species and increase their wild population.
