Before you head out on your survey watch our short film.
The Hop To It Irish Frog Survey began in 1997. We have frog records from every county in Ireland. Volunteer recorders have returned over 4,500 frog records since the survey began. The information has been databased by the IPCC so that it can be used by researchers and conservationists to help our understanding of the status of frogs in Ireland and to take any steps necessary to ensure their survival.
