Find a Frog in February – Finished but not forgotten
Find a Frog in February – Finished but not Forgotten
What an amazing month February was! Seems so long ago now but the experience and information collected by the fabulous Frog Finders of the Mary, Noosa, Burrum River catchments and coastal areas will live on in perpetuity and make a difference.
138 Frog Finders from this year’s MRCCC Citizen Science frog searching program brought in over 2040 frog records of 23 species (4 threatened) from 146 locations. The weather was kind with rain at the start, and even better rain at the end.
Jean Pink from James Nash SHS in Gympie developed a 4-week Year 7 frog module for anyone’s use and some schools have pick up on that – Great Jean! Other schools got the students into frogs in a big way – Amamoor SS, Kilkivan Kindy, Tinana SS.
All records have been sent to the Queensland Government WidlNet database for storage and for retrieval by planners, researchers, assessors, and anyone who is interested. You can access fauna and flora data from this database by searching ‘Wildlife online’.
Many thanks to the amazing participants, our dedicated support staff, NRM groups, schools, FB sharers, media organisations and anyone who passed on the call-out to be involved.
Huge recognition for the Councils that supported us – Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Gympie and Fraser Coast – your communities appreciate it. Let’s do it again in 2019!!
