We're joined by our returning guest, the phenomenal Dr. Jodi Rowley for more froggy chats and to discuss her new book, Status of Conservation & Decline of Amphibians: Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Islands, edited by Harold Heatwole & Jodi Rowley, brought to you by +CSIRO Publishing!

Dr Jodi Rowley has been the Curator of Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Biology at the +australianmuseum since 2016. She's a biologist with a focus on Australasian amphibian biodiversity, ecology and conservation. With a broad integrative approach to her work, she uses morphology, bioacoustics, genetics, and more. She's also involved in #FrogID, the free citizen-science smartphone app for recording, identifying, and mapping frog-calls around Australia.

We discuss FrogID and conservation developments around Australia before covering some of the incredible material in the new Amphibian publication from CSIRO Publishing. You can check out the book at any good book retailer or just click the link below:

This is why it pays to #CheckYourShoes especially if they've been outdoors!

Snakes likes this Keelback and other little critters will routinely hide in a shoe or boot if there's little other option. This one was brought indoors by a roaming cat as a present for it's owner before diving into the shoe rack for cover! Luckily there were no serious injuries, being a non-venomous snake, only minor scale damage to the snake. After a quick checkover he was released back into the nearby creek :)
