Click for more Frog links


no longer a tadpole, not yet a frog

Removing and displacing tadpoles and frogs from the wild without a specific license is illegal in the ACT.  Frogwatch can help you to get tadpoles into your classroom.

Are your students keen to learn more about frogs, care for tadpoles and watch them turn into frogs?? Then this fascinating and rewarding activity is for you!!

Our Tadpole Kits contain everything you need to successfully raise baby tadpoles to young frogs.


Tadpole Kits are limited so better get in soon. Bookings are strictly- first paid best dressed, with a 5 kits limit per school- but remember- sharing is caring!! We only have 120 kits in total for all schools in the ACT. The kits are free- thanks to generous funding from Icon Water, but a refundable deposit ($50/kit) is required.

Do you want to take part in the 2020 Tadpole Kits for Schools, sponsored by Icon Water? The application process will open at 8 am on the 20.07.20, through a link provided below. Bookings before 8 am will not be valid.

We can add your name to our mailing list, so that you will be among the first to be alerted. Simply send an email to, stating your name, your school and contact number, and we will add you to the Tadpole Kits for Schools alert. Looking forward to working with you!
