Community assistance is needed to find out where our frogs are living from Burrum Heads south to Peregian and west to Conondale Range, Kilkivan and Mt Walsh. Frogs are a vital component of ecosystems and can be good indicators of environmental health. But they are in trouble world-wide due to habitat loss, pollution and disease and we need to know more about where they are.
Can you help? We want to improve our knowledge in the Mary, Noosa, Burrum River catchments and coastal region in between.
Information gathered will help to improve the plight of frogs through awareness and thoughtful management.
All records will be stored in the WildNet database (Queensland Government) where is can be accessed by researchers, planners and anyone who is interested.
Jump into being a frog searcher this February. You don’t need to be able to identify frogs, just record your observations, take photos and/or record their calls. We will do the identification.
A copy of the Queensland Museum pocket guide; ‘Frogs of South-east Queensland’ is available to the first 200 frog finders.
Record sheets are available through the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee or from the Find a Frog in February website.
