Australia has over 240 species of native frogs. They are all around us and we want to teach you how to spot them and appreciate them safely.
These amphibians are amazing – they drink through their skin, use their eyes to swallow and inhabit every layer of the forest from the floor to the very tops of the trees! Frogs are one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet, it’s super important to learn as much about them as possible so we can help to support wild populations.
Come along for this family fun walk and have the opportunity to accompany a frog expert of a real wildlife survey. You will receive a crash course in frogs before venturing out into the night to see what we can find and document!
During the walk you can take part in Australia’s Biggest Frog Count for FrogID Week (11 – 20 November 2022). Record frog calls through the free FrogID app to help measure the health and distribution of frogs around the nation. From croaks and barks, to whistles and bleats, every frog species makes a unique sound. Using the free FrogID app, you can record the frogs calling around you and help us count Australia’s frogs.
The workshop is delivered by Watergum as part of the City of Logan’s Environmental Events and Activities program and Citizen Science initiatives.
