Herper of the week

Herper of the Week: Jodi Rowley


The herper (someone who is interesting in reptiles and amphibians) of the week (and the first of this new series of posts) is Dr. Jodi Rowley.  Dr. Jodi Rowley is the Curator of Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Biology for Australian Museum and UNSW Australia where she works to uncover new and old species of frogs that haven’t been seen in awhile. She is currently looking for the Peppered Tree Frog, Litoria piperata which hasn’t been seen since the 1970’s. She mainly works in Australia and South East Asia.

She also does a lot of conservation work. She is a Tier I Member of the IUCN Amphibian Red List Authority and also the co-chair for Mainland Southeast Asia of the IUCN Species Survival Commission Amphibian Specialist Group.

You should follow her on twitter @jodirowley
