Every FrogID recording is listened to by one or more frog call experts at the Australian Museum, and since October 2022, our team has been working through a backlog of over 30,000 submissions! Thank you for contributing to frog conservation through FrogID, and please keep your recordings coming!
In collaboration with The Bowerbird Collective, we’ve produced Songs of Disappearance - an album featuring the calls of over 50 Australian frog species, including a number that are sadly now Extinct.
Album proceeds support the Australian Museum FrogID project, so when you buy Songs of Disappearance, you are supporting frog research and conservation too.
The Australian Museum’s Herpetology department is working closely with Australian Registry of Wildlife Health and government biosecurity and environment agencies to understand the scale of the mass frog deaths across Australia, leading the research to understand the likely causes.
If you observe a sick or dead frog, please email your observation (including photos and location information, if possible) to the Australian Museum’s FrogID team at firstname.lastname@example.org who are helping respond to the outbreak.
We appreciate your important reports of sick and dead frogs, as well as your FrogID submissions through the FrogID app. Together, we are gathering the information we need to help conserve our unique frogs.
The Australian Museum's FrogID project harnesses the work of citizen scientists to power frog research and conservation. Your donation will help support FrogID as we grow our community and important research dataset: from updating mobile and web applications, to producing open-access science and financing our small team, every contribution counts!
Here's what your donation to FrogID can make possible: • $50 helps our scientists verify 10 minutes of frog call recordings • $100 helps send one month of emails • $250 stores ten days of audio recordings • $500 supports 2 hours of developer time for app updates • $2000 supports scientific data subscriptions or two months of data storage
