Suburban Ecology: Saving Our Frogs

June 4, 2015

Research project for Australian native frogs

A research project into the lives and habitats of frogs in urban and suburban areas, Suburban Ecology aimed to discover how local homeowners could have a positive impact on Australia’s native populations. By consulting with ecology and environment experts, collecting anecdotal as well as quantitative data, and looking at how people are already designing their gardens, this project aimed to find new ways to encourage people to design with local ecosystems in mind.
