Fixing our Frogs...the process of elimination

Remember when they moved the wee endangered frogs down here to Canterbury? Well seems it ain't the fungus they original thought was responsible. A friend of mine, Mataroa Frew, first mentioned these tiny frogs (that's tiny as in little, not tinny as in C sativa...), she's from Waikato, one of only two places in the entire universe these fellas and fellesas live (okay, there's my alma mater's zoology department). On the department website there is a list of press releases and so on (little panicky about the PBRF aren't we?).

But seriously, how dangerous are these chemicals to things we hold dear (of course I have no evidence that 'We the People' hold these animals dear). This will undoubtedly get some coverage in the NZ press over the next week, which I'll duly post 'cos I like the wee frogs, despite having never laid eyes on one. Be nice to have the option...
