Today’s photo shows New Zealand’s Hamilton’s frog—one of the world’s most endangered frogs—on Takapourewa / Stephens Island, at the top of the Marlborough Sounds.
Takapourewa / Stephens Island is Marlborough’s most remote DOC outpost and one of the only places in the world where you’ll find Hamilton’s frog.
The island is also a haven for most of the world’s tuatara.
DOC has a rare opportunity for you to visit and work on Takapourewa / Stephens Island.
Fit and healthy volunteers are wanted for one of two 10 day tree planting trips. Learn more on the DOC website.

*Another population has since been found on a nearby island.
A page headed ‘photo of the week’ really should have a photo….. Design basics…

wonderful work DOC. We have such a special natural environment and inhabitants, worth all we can do to protect it.
Awesome photo! cheers
He’s gorgeous – love frogs. We have the sound of the pounding surf here but also the croaking of our frogs – can be a competition at night as to what is loudest!
