The Amphibian Research Centre was established as a centre dedicated to research and conservation of Australia's unique frogs. They provide expertise in all areas of frog knowledge including captive breeding and research and education.

An ever-growing project aiming to provide descriptions, distributions, images, breeding calls, and more for every frog in Australia. A powerful regional guide system allows you to easily find the frogs of your area.

The Community forums allow you to tap into the combined frogs knowledge of our Australia -wide network of frog enthusiasts. Gardening, trivia, pets, frog identification, encounters, and more - specific questions asked and answered within.

Victorian Frog Group

The VFG invites you to participate in activities and meetings held regularly. Don't miss the feature article section.

An estimated 6000-8000 frogs are transported to Melbourne annually in produce. These tropical frogs cannot survive in Victoria's cool climate nor can they be returned to their home state due to fears of spreading disease. These displaced frogs are cared for at the VFG's and ARC's Lost Frogs' Home, nursed back to health in quarantine and eventually placed into a caring home as a family pet.

Amphibian Research Centre

The Southern Corroboree Frog is perhaps Australia's most spectacular frog - unfortunately it is also Australia's most endangered frog. Together with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, the ARC is seeking to save this beautiful species from the brink of extinction.

Frog Watch is dedicated to the provision of frog habitat within residential and rural properties. It focuses on frog-friendly gardening, encouraging frogs to visit (and maybe even breed in) your backyard.

Looking for something in particular and can't decide which project to go to? Look no further.

Note: The Community and The ARCade (store) are not covered by this search but each have their own search facility.
