Thanks go to the following people who, without them, this research would not have been possible.

Mrs. Lorraine Ellis, our biology teacher for encouraging us to prepare this paper and supporting us throughout the project and providing the images. We also thank her for showing us how to use all of the equipment used in the project, and for maintaining this page once we leave.

Dr. Ken Aplin, Alcoa Frog Watch, for providing information on frogs and the chytrid disease. Also for examining our dead frogs.

Mr Russell Harvie and Ms Sharon McDonald and their company Iluka Resources Ltd, Capel for their tremendous encouragement and support.

A special thanks goes to our biology classmates for helping to collect the data necessary for this report.
