Our application for seed funding "Identifying priorities for assessing and managing the impacts of firefighting chemicals and bushfire leachates on Australian frogs" has been successful in the Griffith Sciences Industry Collaborative Grant Scheme ($9,975)! Chief Investigators: Lanctôt, Grogan, Morrison. Mentors: McCallum, Leusch.
The funding is intended to support a burgeoning collaboration with Nick Clemann and his team in the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (VIC), and to identify further collaborative scope for a future ARC Linkage Project application. Our aim is to investigate the impacts of bushfires and firefighting practices on Australian frogs.
