‘Cra-a-a-a-a-a-a-ck, cra-a-ack, cra-a-ack’.
This is the sound you will be listening for if you come on our Smooth Frog survey at Mount Burr Swamp. Frogs are a great indicator of environmental quality. We want to find out where they’re living around the swamp, and these rare little amphibians call in May.
The scientific name, Geocrinia laevis tells you a bit about the species: geo – they live in the dirt, crinia – describes their little froggy toes (which are separate without webbing), and laevis – smooth.
Everyone welcome – family-friendly activity. A BBQ dinner will be provided – please let us know of any dietary requirements.
