ReWild Benefits

Clicking Froglets are also called ‘rattling frogs’ as they produce a repetitive rattling sound.  Frogs and their tadpoles are sensitive critters. Our native frogs are environmental indicators. If you hear or see many frogs in an urban area, it means the local environment is healthy with good ecological function. If you have frogs in the garden you can record their call via Frog ID to help scientists monitor their population.
