Just move the damn frog

How many will die or be severely injured because the NSW state government is wringing its hands over a frog?

THE discovery of a single endangered frog has stopped a multi-million dollar upgrade under way on a notorious stretch of the Princes Highway.

The state government suspended works before Christmas following the discovery of the “rare and endangered” green and golden bell frog.

The Department of Roads and Maritime Services had been working on a $62 million widening duplication project on a 6.3km stretch of the highway through South Nowra.

Take a leaf out of Hong Kong’s book already.

  1. ‘Rare’ frogs were ‘discovered’ during the early site works at Martha Cove on the Mornington Peninsula. Investigation proved that they had been deposited there. Regular habitat was miles away.
    As Maxwell Smart would say, “The old rare-frog-on-the-construction-site trick, Chief!”

      Yep you are right, that is an “old” Greenie trick, to get their own way.

      Just move the frog, he will be happy where ever he is put.
