Harald Ehmann

Harald Ehmann is the Threatened Species Officer with Alinytjara Wilurara Natural Resources.

In this interview we talk with him about the recent sighting of nganngi wala, tiny frogs that normally live deep inside rocky crevices on the APY Lands.

Nganngi wala were spotted and photographed by APY Land Management workers earlier this year after a period of heavy rain.

Harald explains what the frogs look like, the sounds they make and how they survive for long periods of time deep underground.

He also talks about the importance of looking after the fragile ecosystems in which nganngi wala live and breed

and what people can do if they spot or hear an unusual frog out on Anangu lands.
