Frog census

Get involved in our community frog monitoring program, and collect data to help us manage frog populations and raise awareness of waterway health issues.

Frogs play an important role in the waterway ecosystem, and are easily affected by changes to their environment. Being a frog monitor is easy and fun – and you don’t have to be a frog expert! Find out how you can contribute to their conservation by taking part in the Frog Census.

Download the app

With the Frog Census app for Apple or Android, you can record frog calls at any river, creek, wetland or other type of waterway.

We use the data to inform our planning and decisions on waterway health. In order to share biodiversity knowledge about endangered species, it will also be added to CSIRO’s Atlas of Living Australia and the Victorian Biodiversity Atlas.
