FrogWatch SA is your chance to help us understand how our frogs are tracking in South Australia. It will help us better understand the health of our wetland environments. We need more people to contribute to frog surveys and, best of all, you don’t have to be an expert to take part.
There are many parts of the state that haven’t been looked at in detail and there is always more to be learned. We are still finding and describing new types of frogs in South Australia and we know very little about the breeding habits of some of our frogs. FrogWatch SA is a partnership of knowledge sharing that anyone can join. It is a way to stay informed about catchment conditions and environmental issues. The information you provide will help guide important management decisions.
The free FrogSpotter mobile apps and the FrogWatch SA website are the powerhouse behind FrogWatch SA. They are designed to make it easy and fun to learn about South Australia’s frogs and to collect essential knowledge about them. By taking part in frog surveys, you can help us better understand the condition of the environments frogs are dependent on in South Australia.
You don’t have to be an expert to contribute. People of all ages, knowledge and background can take part. There are many ways to participate: as a FrogSpotter, as a group coordinator, or as a frog call identifier. We need information at all times of the year and across all of South Australia.
The best time to count frogs is when they are breeding, which is in winter and spring for most types of frogs.
