Updated:1 year, 1 month ago IST

Sydney (Australia), Nov 26 (ANI): Biologists and IBM have come together to develop a smartphone app to survey Australia's endangered frogs. The app named FrogID, will record and report frog calls, croaks and chirps according to the Australian Museum. The app records a frog's call without disturbing it and notifies a museum expert to verify its species. While the frog populations are significantly reducing globally, it is specially the Australian species which are vulnerable. Australia has over 240 named native species of frog and the citizen scientists are now using the app to discover even more.
