About the event
For those of you who love frogs, this event is for you! Did you know that frogs are an important part of a healthy environment and their calls are a common soundtrack at night in gardens or parks across our towns & cities.
This event will suit keen froggers or people who want to get more experience in using the & iNaturalist & Frog ID app but don’t want to hunt around the bush at night alone. This is your chance. Brett Malcolm will take small groups of people (max 12).
You will need to have a head torch, or small powerful torch, water bottle & your smartphone. Please make sure you wear long pants/sleeves & closed in shoes as it can get muddy on the tracks after rain. Insect Repellant is recommended.
If you don't already have the FrogID & iNaturalist app on your phone. Please download it from the google play store before the event.
All images taken will need to be uploaded onto the iNaturalist platform. Please join the project below by clicking on the hyperlink.
Great Southern Bioblitz Ipswich
After the Frogging event we will have tea & coffee to record the number of frogs & the species sighted. If we find any other interesting animals, or reptiles we can also upload them as part of the Bioblitz. The event will proceed even if it is raining as that always encourages the frogs to call. Happy Frogging everyone!
