Green-thighed Frog (Litoria brevipalmata)



Species Action Statement

This species has been assigned to the Data-deficient species management stream under the Saving our Species program.

Justification for allocation to this management stream

This species is in the Data Deficient stream as little is known about its distribution or the management techniques required to secure it in the wild.

Conservation status in NSW: Vulnerable
Commonwealth status: Not listed

Management objectives

This action statement aims to address key knowledge gaps for this species, which once resolved, can inform effective managment of this species.

How will this species be managed?

The following research actions have been designed to address priority knowledge gaps in order to develop an appropriate management approach for this species:
  • Priority research actions for this species are currently under development.
A number of state-wide conservation actions have also been identified for this species, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.

Show actions

  • Develop an improved map of preferred habitat type and vegetation associations determined from known locality records. Develop models of predicted habitat once an improved understanding of the species preferred non breeding habitat is determined.
  • Develop an improved understanding of the affected tenures and landowners.
  • Develop management strategies that reduce disturbance of riparian areas, particularly in the coastal floodplain landform sections of streams within their identified habitat area.
  • Investigate the impact of frog chytrid on the species and identify any mitigative measures for infected frogs and strategies to prevent infection.
  • Investigate water quality, flows and regime issues as potential threats to species.
  • Develop an improved understanding of the general biology and ecology of the species particularly activity periods, non-breeding habitat and movement patterns.
  • Develop a specific prescription for the species to be applied under the Interim Forest Operations Approvals by State Forests.
  • Develop appropriate fire regime management strategies for the species for non-breeding habitat.
  • Develop a community education strategy that identifies the species breeding habitat.
  • Identify strategies for the management of breeding habitat on private land.
  • Coordinate recovery actions.
