As well as sending your monitoring results to the Frog Atlas, please send us Your Data to notify us that you undertook a frog monitoring activity
Creating Frog Ponds
The Zoos SA Frog Atlas website has a great booklet which outlines some of the things to consider when developing a frog pond. It includes information on suitable plants and frog-friendly fish that can be added to the pond. The booklet can be accessed here
DECD schools should also note that DECD has a policy in regards to creating ponds and wetlands. See www.decd.sa.gov.au/assetservices/pages/topiclisting/Wetlands/ for further details.
