This is when frogs are the most active and you will hear their calls at local wetlands and around water holes.
Mallee CMA needs your help to capture important data through the FrogID app. The app is used to capture the sounds or calls of the frogs before sending the recordings to be analysed by scientists and forms part of the important scientific data used to track frog populations around the state and Australia wide.
Mallee CMA add data collected at local wetlands to the appropriate Environmental Water Management Plan. The data is used to measure our success against the frog habitat protection objectives in our Environmental Water Management Plans we have for Kings Billabong, Cowanna Billabong and other sites.
Get involved… We are launching a campaign to help spread the word about the frog monitoring program and why it’s so important. As part of this we encourage community members to take a photo of themselves (and family) while visiting the wetlands and post it to social media (tagging the Mallee CMA via facebook or Instagram). We would love to see what you get up to and the great work our citizen scientists achieve.
The Mallee Catchment Management Authority (CMA) acknowledges and respects Traditional Owners, Aboriginal communities and organisations. We recognise the diversity of their cultures and the deep connections they have with Victoria’s lands and waters. We value partnerships with them for the health of people and country.
The Mallee CMA Board, management and staff pay their respects to Elders past and present, and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners’ obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
