Caretaking our biodiversity is vital for our native flora and fauna, clean water, clean air, pest control, pollination, nutrient storage, medicines, mental and physical health. From this knowledge and understanding we can all step forward into the actions we can take as a community to improve sustainability in our homes and schools.

Frog Friendly Backyards –
- Frogs as ‘Bioindicators’
- Local threatened species
- ‘Ecosystem Restoration’ for frogs/Frog Friendly Backyards
- How to make a Frog Hotel Demo
The Frog Friendly Backyards talk links well with the aim of the Natura Pacific Back from the Brink programme, which focus on getting our community to take tangible steps towards conservation and ecosystem restoration. Community restoring their backyards for frog habitat is certainly meeting that objective, as well as providing a clear example of how mums, dads and kids can help cease the “war on nature, support biodiversity and to provide ecosystem services”.
