Cane toad’s last croak
In 1935 the Cane Toad was introduced to get rid of cane beetles, a decision that would go on to be one of Australia’s most uncontrollable pest.
77 years later there are over 200 million of the slimy creatures, which displace native species and contain poison that kills potential predators.
After decades of trying to kill them off individually, a group in the Northern Territory are taking a different approach and going after their young.
Bill Walter spoke with Graeme Sawyer from FrogWatch in the Northern Territory to discuss the plan and its processes.
