Tomorrow is Save the Frogs Day - Saturday 30 April! Save the Frogs Day was conceived and is coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!
Save The Frogs Day is the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action. "The goal is to provide people with educational materials, ideas and inspiration and empower them to educate their local communities about amphibians." (Kerry Kriger, Save the Frogs Founder)
Leap into Nature is hosting the only Save the Frogs Day event in Australia!
We are heading to Currawong Bush Park in Doncaster East thanks to Manningham City Council with 24+ participants to do a photo presentation and talk about the different frogs found in Manningham, as well as showcasing a few rare and endangered species found in Victoria and beyond. We will also talk about why frogs are so fantastic, why they need our help and how everybody can help Save the Frogs! We will do a walk to the pond to learn more about frog habitat and listen for some calls, Children will also take part in a variety of art and craft froggy projects.We have lots of fantastic give-aways too from Melbourne Water and Zoos Victoria!
While autumn is a time many of our frogs go quiet over the cooler months, their are still a few species that take advantage of this quietness and breed quite happily in autumn and winter, like the Common Froglet, Southern Brown Tree Frog, Victorian Smooth Froglet and Brood Frogs.
We will provide a special post from our Save the Frogs Day after tomorrow... stay tuned!
