Sloane’s Froglet Crinia sloanei, is a small frog (Figure 1), that is listed as Vulnerable on the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995. It occurs in the western slopes and plains of NSW and in northern central Victoria. Very little is known about Sloane’s Froglet. Significant declines of this species have occurred across its range. Important populations occur in Albury and Corowa (Knight 2013).This document aims to provide some interim information about Sloane’s Froglet habitat requirements which can assist in the management of the Thurgoona population. It is based on research undertaken from 2010 to 2013 into the habitat which Sloane’s Froglet has been found to use in Thurgoona (Knight, unpublished data). It also draws upon more general amphibian research.It is divided into two parts: 1) habitat information, which covers features of the water, vegetation, size and complexity of wetlands that Sloane’s Froglet uses; and,2) management recommendations.
