Five fave film frogs for World Frog Day

As if an excuse was needed to feature the work of our thespian amphibian friends.

This Sunday, 20 March, marks World Frog Day, a holiday you probably didn’t know existed. There’s a good reason for its appearance in the biodiversity calendar: 26 species of Australian frog are at great risk of extinction, and an international day in the limelight for these creatures will significantly increase awareness of this.

The Southern Bell Frog is in particular decline across much of its range and in some regions, it has disappeared entirely. The Foundation for Australia’s Most Endangered Species (FAME) is raising funds to help it bounce back.
