Frogs are disappearing. Declines in frog numbers have been reported around the world and Brisbane is no exception.
Would you like a frog haven in your backyard?
It’s not too difficult to create conditions to attract frogs. They need insects to eat, humidity, hiding places and a suitable place to breed.
And there are plenty of resources available to help you!
The RSPCA has some great tips for frog-friendly habitats. Head to their website to learn more.
The Queensland Frog Society website also offers comprehensive advice.
