The Frog Species That Are Calling You

Preliminary data are in! So far we have received 415 records from citizen scientists. At time of press, the most recorded frog is the Spotted Marsh Frog, Limnodynastes tasmaniensis. The Spotted Marsh Frog’s call is a high-pitched cluck and they are busy calling right now! The second most recorded frog is the Pobblebonk (Limnodynastes dumerilii) followed by the Common Eastern Froglet (Crinia signifera) and Emerald Spotted Tree frog (Litoria peronii). This could all change in the next few months, so do keep recording! We are interested to know when the frogs are calling you as well as where and how it changes.

All of these species are common and widespread and are familiar to many citizen scientists. These frogs are often recorded on people’s properties as well as at WetMAP target sites.
