Green and golden bell frog

PKPC was pleased to see yet another successful breeding season for the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog at the pond located in Port Kembla's Heritage Park.

Several juvenile frogs have been seen in the pond and mature frogs have been located in the surrounding area.

PKPC's pond is one of several breeding sites established in the Port Kembla area, including Brick & Block, BlueScope Steelhaven, Cleary Bros, Port Kembla Public School and several residences.

Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) and PKPC have also worked in conjunction with Wollongong City Council and Dept of Environment and Climate Change to establish a suitable habitat for Green and Golden Bell Frogs north of the Inner Harbour and this site is also doing well.

Reminder: Green and Golden Bell Frogs are an endangered species, it is an offence to handle or harm them and penalties apply. If a frog is sighted in an operational area of the port, do not touch it, report it to Department of Environment and Climate Change on 4224 4100 or 131 555.
