Cane Toad Busting

January 25, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for THE GREAT CANE TOAD BUST and help hunt for one of Australia’s most unwanted pests!

Come along to this one of a kind event – Cane Toad Busting – where you and your family can directly help Logan’s biodiversity. Council has partnered with Watergum to play our part in reducing cane toads numbers and in doing so, provide a safer environment for our native frogs and other wildlife.

Cane toads are highly toxic at every life stage, presenting a significant danger to pets, wildlife and agriculture. These pests spread at an alarming rate and we need to work together to reduce their numbers and reclaim our properties and natural areas.

As we explore Berrinba Wetlands, you learn all about our native frogs, how to identify cane toads, how to collect them by hand and then how to remove them from the environment. There will be a giveaway for the participant who collect the most toads on the night!

The Great Cane Toad Bust is a national initiative, held annually, to impact cane toad populations. We will euthanise and dispose of the toads humanely and responsibly after the event.

Requirements:

  • Please wear fully enclosed shoes.
  • Please bring water bottle, insect repellent, bucket (ideally with a lid), a torch, rubber gloves and a litter picker (optional).
  • Suitable for ages 8 years and over, parent/guardian supervision required.
