Croaks, whistles, bleats and barks - every frog species makes a different sound! By recording a frog call with our new app, FrogID, you can discover which frogs live around you and help us count Australia's frogs!

Frogs are a sign of a healthy environment, but around Australia frogs are declining and many are endangered. By counting Australia's frogs we can learn more about where they are and how they're doing.

Visit the FrogID project website to learn more.

As part of the Spiders - Alive & Deadly exhibition the Australian Museum Digital team developed an ‘Augmented Reality’ phone app. Markers placed around the city streets will generate a 3 dimensional model of a spider when scanned by the phone. The markers appeared throughout the streets of Sydney over the course of the exhibition. Image: Abram Powell
