Kaya is a young zoologist who has worked with frogs for nearly a decade. Her tertiary education began with an undergraduate degree in Zoology from Otago University in New Zealand, followed by an Honours degree from Adelaide University, and a recently completed Ph.D. focusing on the conservation of threatened green and golden bell frogs at the University of Newcastle. In between these periods of study, Kaya expanded her frog catching skills by volunteering for multiple researchers and conservation groups in Ecuador, Bolivia, Madagascar, and Western Australia. Kaya also worked for the New Zealand Department of Conservation on a project monitoring populations of the cryptic and rarely seen Archey’s Frog (Leiopelma archeyi). The rapid need to protect declining frog populations drives Kaya to continue working with these species, as does their ecological importance, and fascinating natural history.
