Crookhaven Green and Golden Bell Frog Citizen Science Project - Planning Meeting 28Feb South Nowra

The overall trend of GGBF population at Crookhaven is one of serious decline due to habitat loss and alteration resulting from surrounding urban development. According to surveys undertaken so far this season, GGBF were not detected at as many locations as in previous years.
By setting up a citizen science project for the Crookhaven GGBFs we aim to:

  • raise public awareness about the Crookhaven population of GGBFs and the important role community can play in protecting and improving key habitat to secure a future for GGBFs in Crookhaven.
  • get local people involved in recording frogs at Crookhaven to provide data on GGBF distribution which in turn will inform conservation planning.

We would greatly value your input in these early planning stages. You are welcome to join the informal meeting and knowledge sharing session –
Where: Worrigee Nature Reserve, meeting point - end of Quinns Lane, South Nowra
When: Monday 28th Feb 10am – 12pm

‘Sloane’s Champions - Citizen Science Monitoring Program’ is a partnership between Saving Our Species (SoS), Woolshed Thurgoona Landcare Group and Corowa Landcare Group. It has been incredibly successful in raising the profile of the tiny Sloane’s Froglet and engaging the community to learn about the species - many didn’t know existed in their local area and the pressures it faced.

Community involvement in this citizen science monitoring project dramatically increased knowledge about where this frog species occurs and where it’s absent, informing conservation planning. We think we could use this project as a template for rolling out something very similar for the bell frogs at Crookhaven.

We hope you can make it! Contact Lucy for further details

Crookhaven Green and Golden Bell Frog Citizen Science meeting went ahead despite the weather. Council is keen to get on board and NPWS is willing to assist. We will post news on upcoming workshops.
