#012 – Herpetology: It’s A Hard Frog Life For WA

Frog - Zoology

What is Herpetology? Herpetology is the study of amphibians and is also the specialisation of our featured guest for this episode, Joshua Keen. Joshua graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2016 completing a degree in zoology and conservation biology. He then spent a year studying the fields of ecology and herpetology investigating frog ecology and pioneering new conservation monitoring techniques. Josh is passionate about his research and that is clearly conveyed in this discussion. He is also involved with the care of reptiles outside of his academic work by practising herpetoulture – the keeping and breeding of reptiles.

Joshua was an absolute delight to hold a discussion with and I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. If you have any questions for Josh or myself, please contact Vaguely Accurate and we will forward on queries.
