The American bullfrog is a large and voracious frog species, with significant impacts on other aquatic life. The bullfrog was imported from America into Europe, and has become established in Flanders since the 90s. Large populations exist in the province of Antwerp in particular.
The 3n-Bullfrog project seeks for sustainable ways of controlling the Flemish population of bullfrogs. This should halt the species’ further spread, and thus help to conserve nature.
Several terrain managers are involved in the project as partners. The project has officially started in October 2019. The progress can be followed on the (Dutch) website of www.stierkikker.be.
The 3n-Bullfrog project has received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union (LIFE18 NAT/BE/001016).
