Why are amphibians across the world dying from a fungal infection? Where did the fungus come from? How does it kill and are populations adapting?
On this episode of Big Biology, we talk with Craig Franklin, a biologist at the University of Queensland and the director of research for the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, about the history and distribution of the fungus, how it’s killing so many species, and what we can do to save them.
