Fight over for froglet with waterhole filled in last week

A BURRUM Coast National Park waterhole which was home to a vulnerable frog and used by the Rural Fire Service for water was filled in last week.

Burrum Coast resident Doug Waters has been in a long battle with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife over the hole he dug a few years ago.

In August he was ordered to fill in the hole.

The RFS said it would be difficult to fight fires in the park without the waterhole and environmentalists said it was a habitat for the tiny Crinia tinnula, the wallum froglet.
