Beyond Bolac CAG received funding from Wettenhall Environment Trust to inspire the local community to learn about the unique frog species which inhabit the Victorian Volcanic Plains.
The Frogging on the Victorian Volcanic Plains workshop was held online on Friday 1st October, 2021, Dr Ayesha Burdett and Dr Elia Pirtle talked all things wetlands, Frogs and Waterbugs. Dr Elia Pirtle explained how to undertake your own survey for frogs, see her short ‘How to survey for frogs’ video here.
Below is a number of other resources from that event which will assist you to locate and identify Frog and Waterbug species at your local wetland or damn.
A series of interactive signs were developed and installed at a local wetland in Willaura during Winter/Spring of 2020, where visitors were able to read about the local frog species and then hear their call. These signs will visit local schools during 2021 to teach students about the local frog species and their habitat, as well as be re-installed at a local wetland for community members to visit.
