The Currimundi Catchment Care Group in the Sunshine Coast of Queensland has posted a blog post on the Striped Marsh frog.
They are a grassroots organisation that is:
‘a very diverse and active group. We have removed weeds and planted thousands of plants in the parks and bushland bordering the waterways, collected tonnes of rubbish, stenciled litter awareness messages on hundreds of stormwater drains, delivered thousands of newsletters four times a year to a growing urban sprawl, distributed thousands of butt bins, addressed school groups on local environmental issues, conducted tours of an important rainforest stand and maintained a monthly water-monitoring roster at twenty sites along the waterways.’ (source: Currimundi Catchment Care Group website).
They asked permission to use a photo I took when we lived at Woodgate Beach in Hervey Bay.
They have also included a sound track of the unique croak of the Striped Marsh frog (a drip, drip, drip sound – I used to think it sounded like a game of ping pong (if you have a group of them).
So if you want to know more about the frog hop on 😉 over to their website
