Dr. Jodi Rowley - Discovering New Frogs!

Read more

Dr. Jodi Rowley is a biologist with a focus on amphibian diversity, ecology and conservation.

Jodi and her team have discovered a multitude of amphibian species never before known to science and have gone to the most extreme lengths to find them.

I found this conversation to be absolutely fascinating. We talk about:

- trekking into remote Cambodian rainforests during monsoon season 

- getting attacked by leeches in the jungle

- benefits amphibians bring to humans and ecosystems

- why they are being lost at an unprecedented rate

- and how we may be able to help

Please check out and support Jodi’s work:

We're joined by our returning guest, the phenomenal Dr. Jodi Rowley for more froggy chats and to discuss her new book, Status of Conservation & Decline of Amphibians: Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Islands, edited by Harold Heatwole & Jodi Rowley, brought to you by CSIRO Publishing!

Dr Jodi Rowley has been the Curator of Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Biology at the Australian Museum since 2016. She's a biologist with a focus on Australasian amphibian biodiversity, ecology and conservation. With a broad integrative approach to her work, she uses morphology, bioacoustics, genetics, and more. She's also involved in FrogID, the free citizen-science smartphone app for recording, identifying, and mapping frog-calls around Australia.

We discuss FrogID and conservation developments around Australia before covering some of the incredible material in the new Amphibian publication from CSIRO Publishing. You can check out the book at any good book retailer or just click the link below:

We had an awesome time with Dr Rowley talking frog conservation, the new FrogID citizen-science project, and much more, over some coffee and cupcakes. After checking out Jodi's talk at the Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, we head out to have a play around with the #FrogID app around the CREEC reserve and creek system. We're also joined by Scott Eipper from Nature4You and some keen local froggers. What an amazing night with some interesting people! Thanks again to CREEC and FrogID for letting us tag along! Cheers :)

Ep 33. Frog calls, monsoons and haunted tennis courts with Jodi Rowley

Read more


Spending months on end trudging through monsoonal South East Asian Rainforests is a far cry from the suburban upbringing of Jodi Rowley. However travelling across the globe to remote locations in search of frogs is all part of the job as she now works as a herpetologist at the Australian Museum. She regularly spends time in South East Asia documenting the biodiversity of amphibians. 

This research is crucial now as we are currently witnessing rapid declines in frog populations world wide due to climate change and habitat modifications. Only by understanding what species are out there, and where they live can we begin to conserve them before they are lost forever
