Come along for a night adventure with a frog expert to discover our amazing amphibians and take part in a national citizen science event. You will receive a crash course in frogs before venturing out into the night to see what we can find and document!
Australia has over 240 species of native frogs that live a variety of habitats – from our backyards to wetlands. Frogs are one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet, so it’s super important to learn as much about them as possible to help support wild populations.
During the walk you can take part in Australia’s Biggest Frog Count, FrogID Week (3 – 12 November 2023)! 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.
