Frogs are a vital part of healthy ecosystems. They are a key link in food webs – they help keep insect numbers in check and serve as a tasty treat for lizards, snakes, birds, fish, and even other frogs – and tadpoles feed on algae, helping to control algal blooms.  

Australia is home to over 240 species of frog, most of which are found nowhere else in the world. However, many are threatened with extinction and face multiple threats, including disease, habitat loss and modification, pollution, and climate change. It is now more important than ever to understand how frogs are coping with these threats, and you can help!

Gracie Liu will speak about FrogID – Australia’s first national frog count – and how you can join thousands of others across Australia in informing frog research and conservation, simply by using your smartphone. She will also share tips on how to make your garden more frog-friendly and will highlight some local frog species to keep your eyes (and ears!) out for.

All welcome.
