- Departure time:
his week is Frog Monitoring Week, (13th - 19th August) where we head up the Range to Kuranda and record the sights and sounds of frogs in the region, with a particular focus on the endemic and critically endangered Litoria myola, or Myola Treefrog. Frogs are an indicator species, meaning when frogs are present, the waterways and surrounding forest are nice and healthy!
Volunteers will tend to about 3 sites on the night of your choice (Mon - Thurs), where we will record all sightings and sounds of frogs. These results are then forwarded through to JCU for research purposes.
Monitoring starts at 7pm, with transport available from a pick up point in Cairns at 6:30pm. We should be back in Cairns by 10 - 11pm at the very latest.
Limited seats available - to book a seat (Free) to come up and join us, please contact Simone on the details provided.
Please wear sturdy, enclosed shoes and a head torch (for those requiring a headtorch, please let me know, limited ones avaialble), Download the free frog app "FrogID" to get practice with listening to the calls, or purchase "Frogs of Australia" for only $25, created by research associate Conrad Hoskin of JCU.
