Tune in to hear about Australia’s frogs & how citizen scientists are helping us learn more about a tiny threatened local, Sloane’s froglet.
You’re invited to a very froggy evening. Speakers from the Australian Museum and FrogID, the NSW Saving our Species program, Wodonga Urban Landcare Network and Baranduda Landcare will be speaking about the ecology and conservation of Australia’s frogs, including the tiny threatened Sloane’s froglet.
This tiny threatened frog is only known from a few locations in southern NSW and a scattering of sites in Victoria. The Sloane’s Champions citizen scientists have been working hard since 2017 to help us understand where Sloane’s froglets are found. These citizen scientists have been showing that Sloane’s froglet also occurs in Wodonga, but so far we only have a few records.
We’re calling on all interested citizen scientists, on both sides of the border community, to join the movement and help us find Sloane’s froglet. Join us to hear more about how you can get involved and test your frog identification skills.
Numbers are limited, so please register early.
