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.
FrogID is a national citizen science project that is helping us learn more about what is happening to Australia’s frogs. All around the country, people are recording frog calls with nothing more than a smartphone. Visit the FrogID website to view Australia’s top froggers on our FrogID leaderboard.
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. And by matching calls to weather and habitat, we are learning more about how different frog species are responding to a changing environment.
Explore the interactive map below showing validated frog calls records revealing species from across Australia captured by citizen scientists, and discover what's been recorded in your local government area. Stay tuned for the first year records, that will be released soon!
