change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Anon.



Author's Biography


The conservation breeding of two foot-flagging frog species from Borneo, Staurois parvus and Staurois guttatus. Doris Preininger, Anton Weissenbacher, Thomas Wampula, and Walter Hödl. Amphibian and Reptile Conservation 5(3):45-56(e51).

Thomas Wampula


THOMAS WAMPULA has worked since 1996 at the Vienna Zoo Schönbrunn. He started as Animal Care Taker at the Aquarium-house and later transferred to the “Rainforest house” where his first and fore¬most interests were amphibians, reptiles, and fish. His duties and responsibilities included the arrangement and design of terraria and the maintenance of facilities. In 2007 he became a member of the Department of Technology and Project Development at the zoo and now is engaged in planning, design, and development of viviaria in the entire Vienna Zoo. The foot-flagging frog project has repeatedly led him to Borneo, where he assisted in field work, capture, transport, and care of frogs, and at the zoo he managed the construction of the breeding facility.
