Adventures in Frog Conservation
Speaker: Dr. Jodi Rowley
Dr. Jodi Rowley is a biologist with a focus on amphibian diversity, ecology and conservation, and a passion for communicating. Her research seeks to uncover and document biodiversity and inform conservation decisions. After a degree in Environmental Science (Hons) at UNSW Sydney, Jodi completed her PhD at James Cook University, where she radiotracked rainforest frogs to help understand why some frog species were declining from disease and others weren't. In 2006, Jodi moved to Cambodia to work for Conservation International and began conducting amphibian research in Southeast Asia, focusing on expeditions in remote forested mountains and training young amphibian biologists. In 2008, she moved back to Australia and began working for the Australian Museum. She has greatly expanded knowledge about amphibian species diversity in Australasia, having led dozens of expeditions and co-discovered more than 30 new frog species, including the Vampire Flying Frog. Her most recent work focuses on discovering and scientifically describing new species of Australian tree frogs and searching for the Peppered Tree Frog, not seen since the 1970s. She is Chief Scientist of FrogID, a national citizen science project that has collected over 400,000 records of frogs across Australia since launching in November 2017.
