Are you thinking of releasing tadpoles or frogs into your garden? Or moving them from one location to another? If so, can you please read some of the following information?
Firstly this behavior is illegal in most states of Australia; please start by checking http://frogs.org.au/arc/legal.html to find an overview of the laws for your state.
Most of us do not promote the law for the laws sake but because we believe in the reasons behind the creating of those laws. Some of those reasons are shown here and I will add anymore as I find them.

As an overview of the above sites the concerns are:
Pollution of the local regional differences.
Depletion of the local species when non local species are introduced.
Please note I have selected links from around the world, again please check you state laws as they may differ from the information given.
The Frog Watch project focuses on frog-friendly gardening - the approach to conservation is based on learning, appreciation and involvement. This forum deals with all topics relating to providing habitat for local frogs including ponds, plants, and fish.
