More residents on the Parramatta River than you think

Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog

The Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog (Litoria fallax) is a common resident of the Parramatta River catchment

Would you be surprised to learn that 360 native animal species call the Parramatta River catchment home?

James Smallson from Parramatta City Council, who was involved in a project that set out to quantify how many and where animal species live in the Parramatta River catchment, will be one of a number of guest speakers at this year’s Life in the Park.

Life in the Park is a short talk series on 16 August in Bicentennial Park on birds, microbats and other local urban wildlife and best of all it’s free.

Come along to meet and learn from James as he shares on this incredible project that covered a massive 27,000 hectares and find out just how the project team intend to use this information to protect and restore native habitats to support these local furry, feathery and slimy residents.
