The state government and local landholders have banded together to help save an endangered species of frog which lives in the region.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) have teamed up with landholders to help reduce the decline of Southern Bell Frogs in the Riverina.
The species is regarded as endangered in NSW, which means the species faces a 'high risk' of extinction in the near future.
State Environment Minister Matt Kean said there has been a significant decline over the past two years of Southern Bell Frogs in the state.
"Southern bell frogs were once found extensively across much of southern inland NSW," Mr Kean said.
"Now only a handful of isolated populations remain in the Coleambally Irrigation area, Lower Murrumbidgee and the Mid and Lower Murray floodplains.
Mr Kean said factors like inadequate water supply, loss of habitat and predation by introduced pests have sped up the decline in recent years.
The partnership aims to provide water to wetlands areas the species lives in, with landowners helping to provide resources to further the species' survival.
A DPIE spokesperson said the partnership is already leading to strong results in areas.
"In the Coleambally area, there are two landholders, with three wetlands between them, [which have been] provided with water for Southern Bell Frogs and other outcomes," they said.
"DPIE has had a lot of success in the Mid-Murray area where 80-90 per cent of the wetlands provided with environmental water have bell frog populations.
"This number increases to 100 per cent of wetlands in the Lower Darling area."
The Coleambally Irrigation area is one of five areas highlighted by DPIE as a location where isolated populations of Southern Bell Frogs remain in NSW, with the Lower Murrumbidgee, Mid-Murray, Lower-Murray and Lower Darling areas also noted by the government.
