August 2021 alert: Frog die-off across eastern Australia

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 along the East Coast of 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 calls@frogid.net.au who are helping respond to the outbreak. Please be advised that any personal information you provide to the AM is shared with the relevant agencies and government departments responding to the frog deaths and is subject to the AM’s Privacy Policy (https://australian.museum/privacy/). If you do not wish for your personal information to be shared with these agencies, you must advise the AM by emailing calls@frogid.net.au with the subject line “Opt-out – Frog death research”. 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.

Hey, Look!

We're excited to share "Bella" in 3D with you! He is our very own Augmented Reality (AR) frog: the Cape York Graceful Tree Frog (Litoria bella).
Back in 2016, our lead scientist Dr Jodi Rowley helped identify this frog as Australia’s 239th frog species. You can have fun with our AR frog by using our Instagram effects tab and don’t forget to tag @frogidaus in any image posts, we look forward to seeing the awesome places you’re using the FrogID app and Bella!

Frogs count!

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.
