The National Frog Pond Building Project

Between 2018 and 2021, the Australian Museum and Bunnings partnered together on the National Frog Pond Building Project. Together we engaged with over 200 schools across Australia by assisting them to build a ‘frog-friendly’ pond to help Australia’s frog populations thrive.
Students learned about their local biodiversity, monitored the frog pond and recorded frog calls using the FrogID app. The project was supported by educational materials and digital resources to highlight the importance of frogs in the environment.
Contact the Activities Organiser at your local Bunnings store to see if they are interested in helping your school build a frog-friendly pond, or use the resources below to help create your own frog haven at school.
