Our region is packed with an abundance of diverse natural attractions, from forested national parks to waterfalls, gorges, slow meandering waterways and wetlands of international significance. Our backyard is home to a teeming assortment of flora and fauna, some of which are found no where else.
Twelve species of indigenous frogs are known to this region, including two threatened species that are listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988; the Growling Grass Frog (Litoria raniformis), pictured below, and the Bibron's Toadlet (Pseudophryne bibroni).
This program focuses on developing participant's skills in frog identification and surveying techniques. The North Central Waterwatch team can offer information, training sessions, monitoring equipment and technical support through this program.
The aim of this program is to:
