Frogs Vic April Event

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the next Frogs Victoria event:

Monsoon, mud and mozzies: Modelling the distribution of a range-restricted frog, by Matt Clancy

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Elgin Inn 75 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn VIC 3122

From 6 pm for dinner and drinks (available for purchase).

Talk starts at 7:30.

April’s presenter is Matt Clancy, Research Assistant at The University of Melbourne and passionate herpetologist and wildlife photographer. Matt will present “Monsoon, mud and mozzies: Modelling the distribution of a range-restricted frog”.

Developing models of the distribution and habitat requirements of species is fundamental to conservation planning, especially for species with narrow habitat requirements or restricted distributions. Matt will cover the objectives and outcomes of his honours project studying the Howard Springs Toadlet (Uperoleia daviesae), the first frog to be recognised as threatened in the Northern Territory.

We are hoping to film the event, so if you can’t make it, we will be posting it to our You Tube channel as soon as we can following the talk.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions via Facebook, our contact page or

Hope to see you on the 2nd of April!

Thankyou all for your continuing support,

Best wishes,

Frogs Victoria
