The southern Corroboree Frog is one of Australia’s most endangered species. The Corroboree Frog has no natural predators as they secrete poisonous toxins but they are susceptible to human impacts such as climate change, fire and habitat disturbance and the largest threat the Chytrid Fungus. The fungus only infects the tadpoles and adult frogs as they contain keratin. Frog eggs are devoid of keratin. In 2014 there was thought to be less than 50 frogs in the wild.
