When cities grow bigger, nature suffers – including very fragile animals such as frogs. It is estimated that almost one third of all frog species are listed as threatened or extinct and these are only the species that we know off! But why are frogs so susceptible to human impacted changes in the environment? How do frogs change to human imposed interference? Tune into this episode of a ribbeting frog special to find out!

This week Anastasia and Cat chat to herpetologist Brittany Mitchell. Britt is a frog conservationist doing her PhD at UNSW. Britt studies how human activity and climate effects frog behaviour, ecology, and immunology. She is also one great frog call mimic!
