Every FrogID recording is listened to by one or more frog call experts at the Australian Museum, and since December 2021, 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! We will be taking a short break over Christmas and the New Year and will be back listening to your frog calls in January 2022.
FrogID is the AM’s flagship citizen science project that is improving our understanding of Australia’s unique frog species.
Please donate to FrogID to support essential frog research and conservation.
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.
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.
