Volunteers needed for the frog census

The Melbourne Water Frog Census Program needs volunteers to record frog calls on their land or at their local waterways during the months of April, August, October and November.

Volunteers are welcome to submit calls all year round but the majority of frog species are most active during these months. The website also has a handy identification guide. On 4 November there is a frog census event at Werribee Zoo
