Giant Barred Frog

Dear Fellow Froggers!

 We’re getting organised for this year’s frog monitoring and would like to get an idea of how many people are available to volunteer with us. In particular we would like to find out who would be interested in volunteering at our Wallum sites – either located in Coolum (near Perigian Springs) or Kawana (Brightwater). We can’t do both sites so we’d like to find out which one we have the highest volunteer numbers for.

 If you are interested in participating for one day or every day then please let me know ASAP.  We plan on monitoring during January and February 2014.

We have sites this year at:

1.           EJ Foote Reserve Buderim (Sunshine Coast Council)

2.           Jack Connelly’s Property Musa Vale Rd, Cooroy (Private Landholder)

3.           Yaroomba Bushland Reserve, Mt Coolum (Sunshine Coast Council)

4.           Lucille Mariott – Platypus Creek Road, Dulong (Private Landowner)

5.           The fifth site will be dependent on the number of people interested in either the Coolum or Kawana site.

If you’re interested in monitoring with us, please reply with answers to the following questions:

1.       What day(s) of the week do you prefer?

2.       What is your preferred site(s)?

3.       Are you interested in surveying at the Coolum site (near Perigian Springs) or the Kawana site (Brightwater)?

I need responses by Friday the 29th of November so we can be organised before the Christmas break, and ready to start early January.
