Be Frog Safe
Although we do many of the things other frog conservation groups do, we are best known for our rescue/rehab activity known as the Frog Hospital.
This innovative approach to learning what is involved in the regions' frog decline has yielded important information about the environment but also opened a new door for the community to be involved in helping frogs which they didn't have prior to our establishment. It has also allowed us to learn rehab techniques that might be picked up by others in other parts of the world who didn't realise that frog rehab was possible.

All that remains from our previous facility in Carmoo is the clean up. This move has been extremely difficult on our President and she is exhausted and having CV issues. A couple extra hands to finish the cleanup on Wens/Thurs arvos would be wonderful PLEASE! Also, the telco has still not fixed up the new service at our Innisfail location so we still don't have a phone or new emails there. The only way to reach us in the meantime is by voice or plain text to our 3G mobile carphone: (0428) 114 266...

Many thanks to Hinterland Aviation ! We were informed of a frog in Cooktown with an advanced stage of cancer and Hinterland promptly sent it down to Cairns - as they have done many times before. It is wonderful to have the support of local businesses and the local wildlife rescue people in Cooktown - it makes our work so much easier....

Just when we were starting to wonder how many more months we could keep our doors open, a very nice donation arrived from Mitch and Lisa which will add a few more months to our estimations! We are so grateful for kind people out there who value what we are doing. Lots of good karma coming to you Mitch and Lisa! And thank you to all the other donations that arrived in December. We need all of them to keep going!...

This is the time of year when we start to see frogs with cancer. Please keep a lookout for any frog that has any lump(s) anywhere on the body. Use gloves or a plastic bag over your hand and place it into an ice cream container with airholes cut in the lid and bring indoors. Ring us to arrange transport. Some of these frogs might have parasites or abscesses which are treatable but, if they have cancer, we don't want them to remain in the wild....
