Cane Toads Going West

Tuesday 2nd April / presented by Teri Campbell

One difference between Western Australia and the Eastern states is the relative lack of cane toads, but that may be changing, with devastating ecological consequences.

While Queensland, the Northern Territory and New South Wales have remained commonplace for the toxic amphibian since its introduction to the top end in 1935, the toad’s migration west is recent, its impact inevitable and solution unclear.

University of New South Wales Centre for Ecosystem Science Professor Mike Letnic joined RTRFM to discuss a proposal of waterless barriers, similar to firebreaks, as a solution.
