Tadpole Kit Program

Caring for tadpoles and watching them turn into frogs (metamorphose) is a fascinating and rewarding activity for young and old alike. It is also becoming more useful for scientific reasons, because much is still not known about frogs and the reasons for their dramatic population decline worldwide. However, removing and displacing tadpoles and frogs from the wild without a specific license is illegal in the ACT.  To overcome this dilemma the Frogwatch ACT and Region program offers the loan of a complete Tadpole Kit so students can observe the amazing process of tadpoles going through metamorphoses.

Frogs For The Future

We offer the  loan of an enclosure containing two Green and Golden Bell frogs for one term to schools with an environmental/sustainability centre. This program focuses on the needs and threats of our local threatened and endangered frog species and learning outcomes will be greatly enhanced by students caring for the animals.

School visits

Are your students interested in frogs and are asking more questions than you can find answers for?? Are you teaching climate change, development, water, habitat,  adaptations, evolution or life in general?? We offer you a visit from our Frogwatch Education Officer to your school or group to talk about the fascinating world of frogs.
