Do you have frogs on your property? Frogs are excellent indicators of a healthy ecosystem. They are also one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet!

Come along to this free webinar co-hosted by BCT and the AM to celebrate FrogID Week and hear about how you can use the AM’s free FrogID app to help monitor biodiversity on your land.

*A link will be sent to you closer to the event.

Join the AM’s Amphibian & Reptile Curator, Dr Jodi Rowley, to learn about the importance of frogs and the threats they currently face, why we should carefully manage habitats like dry riverbeds, dams, creeks and bushland, and what you can do to help conserve frog species in your area.

There will be an opportunity at the end of the discussion for the audience to participate and ask questions.

Dr Jodi Rowley is the Curator of Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Biology, leading the Herpetology department, at the Australian Museum Research Institute, Australian Museum & Centre for Ecosystem Science, UNSW Sydney.

She is a biologist with a focus on amphibian diversity, ecology and conservation, and a passion for communicating biodiversity conservation.

Her research seeks to uncover and document biodiversity, understand its drivers, and inform conservation decisions.

She focuses on amphibians because they have the greatest levels of undocumented diversity of any terrestrial vertebrate group, perform irreplaceable functions in many ecosystems and are being lost at an unprecedented rate.

BCT are proud supporters of FrogID Week 2021.
