Meet the expert – FrogID Week
Meet Dr Jodi Rowley online during FrogID Week and learn about Australia’s frogs!
Did you know that every frog species makes a different sound and that they can croak, whistle, bleat and even bark? This free virtual excursion with Dr Jodi Rowley will explain to students why frogs call, how they are adapted to survive in different environments and how recording their calls can help us understand and conserve our ecosystems.
Dr Jodi Rowley is the Curator of Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Biology at the Australian Museum Research Institute, the University of New South Wales, and is Chief Scientist for FrogID – Australia’s citizen science project focusing on frogs. FrogID Week runs from 12-21 November 2021.
The virtual excursion will be held online via Zoom. An email with the link to join Zoom and any further information will be sent to you by the Australian Museum at least a week before your session.
