When it comes to understanding a healthy ecosystem, frogs can tell us a lot. They are important to food webs and provide indicators of healthy waterways. Sadly, frog numbers are in decline. To protect Australian frogs, scientists and land managers need to understand where frogs are and how they are doing. One way that people can help with this huge task is through recording frog calls using the free FrogID app. This presentation will introduce the audience to the FrogID citizen science project, some of the ways in which FrogID data is informing science, including bushfire recovery, and how individuals and families can get involved.
Presenter: Brittany Mitchell, PhD Candidate and FrogID Validator.
