Elected representatives in government are in charge of the policy and funding that can make or break saving threatened species. Their decisions and actions matter.

Macarthur has or used to have 23 threatened animals within its boundaries. One of them is me, the Littlejohn's Tree Frog.

We took care to attach appropriate images that are as close to representative of each species as our resources and the availability of images allowed. However, we could not ensure perfect accuracy in every case. Some images show species that share the same genus but not at the species or subspecies level.

Littlejohn's Tree Frog

Litoria littlejohni

Status: Endangered

The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) lists threatened species under six categories:

Litoria littlejohni is found across 11 electorates.

Littlejohn's Tree Frog is similar in appearance to the Jervis Bay Tree Frog, Litoria jervisiensis, from which it may be distinguished by its broad head, absence of a white glandular stripe from below the eye through the angle of the mouth, and its distinctive call. Its snout-vent length is 55 to 60 mm.¹
