Listing of Sloane's Froglet as Endangered under the EPBC Act

    Impact: Public policy Impact

    Impact story summary

    Based on my PhD research, Sloane's Froglet, Crinia sloanei, was listed as an endangered species under the Federal government's Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. The species was previously unlisted at a Federal level. This listing is a significant change in policy for the species, which was unprotected and in decline.
