If there's an award for attitude this little guy comes pretty close to it!
Captured and released in a wildlife survey in SE Queensland pobblebonks and other frog species play vital roles in the ecosystems and are an integral part of the food web.
Globally frog populations have been declining at alarming rates, in Australia 15 species of frogs are currently listed as endangered, and unfortunately we have completely lost four species.
For many years especially as a kid I felt totally helpless in my ability to help make a change. NOW, I think one of the most exciting things that allows you to help scientists and research work directly is available at the palm of your hand. Download the @frogidaus app through the App Store and then it's simply a matter of going out and recording and uploading frog calls that you hear! Think of it like the Shazam for frog ID.
In the process you get to learn about the frog species in your area, what they look like and where their found all while helping monitor frog populations!
