FrogID is a national citizen science project that is helping us learn more about what is happening to Australia's frogs.

The role

Australia has over 240 known species of frog, almost all of which are found nowhere else in the world.
Some species are flourishing, like the Striped Marsh Frog, but others have declined dramatically since the 1980s and four have become extinct. All around the country, people are recording frog calls with nothing more than a smartphone. With the data obtained through FrogID we are able to track the Cane Toad and identify where frogs are thriving and where they aren't.
