Spatial coverage of FrogID records

Expanding the spatial coverage of FrogID records throughout Australia strengthens our ability to advance national frog research and conservation efforts.

Help record in uncoloured areas

By dividing Australia into grid cells of approximately 0.5 decimal degrees (~55km), we have a total of 3,244 grid cells across the country. As of 15 January 2024, FrogID records are in 1,188 grid cells, accounting for 36.5% of Australia.

View our interactive FrogID grid count map above, or request the file below and help fill data gaps by recording in uncoloured areas. Together, let's aim to achieve 50% coverage of Australia!

Record frog calls and earn FrogID badges!

Did you know, by visiting and recording frog calls at the same location over weeks or months, we can track frog populations over time, and identify if something changes? You can also earn FrogID badges by recording regularly with FrogID, and by recording from different parts of Australia. Keep recording frogs whenever you hear them and participate in science!
