Find a Frog in February 2023!

It's that time of year again and we are challenging you to Find a Frog in February!

We see some of you have got in early and are starting to see frogs about including some Great-barred frogs, Eastern sedge frogs and Rocky river frogs. Whether you are part of the greater Mary River Catchment or any catchment of the Sunshine Coast, get out there and take some photos or record those frog calls and upload them to iNaturalist.

Get involved in this great community frog monitoring project this February and join the Find a Frog in February project on iNaturalist. You can search for the project in iNaturalist or find the project here: and when you photograph a frog on your property it will be added to the project.

Often it is easiest to spot frogs at night, when we can hear frogs calling preceding or after rainfall. If you're spotlighting at night, remember to always stay vigilant of your surroundings and take a buddy with you on your walk.

This iNaturalist project is run by the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee (MRCCC), aiming to assist land managers to help them undertake actions that improve water quality and aquatic biodiversity, and improve their productivity and sustainability in the Mary River Catchment. If you’d like to learn more about the MRCCC visit their website:

Another handy application that can assist you in identifying frogs in SEQ is the Australian Museum Frog ID app. which you can check out here -

How many frogs will you log this month? Happy frogging!
