SciFest – Fantastic Frogs
Time: 13:00
Overview: Australia has around 200 species of native amphibians, all of which are frogs. Frogs play a key role in many food webs, both as predators and as prey. By observing frog populations, we can get a good indication of the condition of the environment as frogs are sensitive to environmental change. At present, frog populations are declining all around the world.
