This course is ideal for those who want to learn more about cane toads. Once completed, you will then be eligible to join the Cane Toad Challenge on the Gold Coast! The Cane Toad Challenge is a revolutionary new method of cane toad control that uses the toad’s own toxins against them! This short online will provide you with all the information you need to successfully deploy your tadpole traps and stall the next generation of cane toads. When used effectively, one bait can catch over 5000 tadpoles!
Its important that you take in all the information provided in this course as the traps can be completely ineffective if used incorrectly.
Some of our members have managed to nearly eradicate cane toads from their properties by persevering with the techniques outlined in this course. They have observed the return of native species, improved water quality and have created a safe environment for their dogs and children.
Remember to press COMPLETE at the bottom of each lesson once you have read and understood it! Once a lesson is completed, a blue tick will appear next to it in the left hand side-bar and your course progress will be updated.
Once you have completed the entire course and passed both of the quizzes (don’t worry you have 3 attempts at each) you qualify for CTC membership! If you would like to purchase a tadpole trap, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a screenshot of your quiz results. Then you can arrange to come in and collect your trap and baits. Traps are $30 and baits are supplied free of charge. We are a not-for-profit organisation and revenue from trap sales goes on more trap-making materials.
