Frogs! Frogs! Frogs!

There are about 208 species of frogs known in Australia, possibly more to be discovered. Four species of Australian frogs have become extinct and the survival of another twenty-seven species is under threat.

Lots of schools are working to support frogs in their local area. Here are some resources to help you and your school help these special animals.
