Foam Nest Tree Frog

And so…part of our responsibility as a professional wildlife rehabilitation centre is to test for potential pathogens that could be harmful to populations of wildlife should an infected individual be released into the wild…

In this video, we are taking a swab from the ventral regions of a Foam Nest Frog to test for Chytrid Fungus…the sample will be sent up to SANBI, where the tests will be done while we keep this little frog in quarantine at FreeMe Wildlife.

Once given the all clear, he will be on his way back to Zululand where he belongs…
