I first became became passionate about frogs after a particularly wet trip to Fogg Dam, Northern Territory in February 2014. I went to help out a friend of mine while he was doing his honours project on cane toads. The sheer volume of frogs and the noise that went with them was incredible. Pure life! Since then I have taken a keen interest in finding and learning about Australian frogs and their calls.

This interest in conservation has led me all over Australia volunteering and working on various science-based projects including two stints at Scotia Australian Wildlife Conservancy. I gained a Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management graduating in 2016. I currently also work for a restoration ecology contractor in the beautiful area of Central Coast NSW. There is so much unique biodiversity in Australia, we should do everything we can to help it thrive.
