Cane Toad Busting Information Session

December 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Get ready for cane toad season and help protect Logan’s biodiversity!

Come and enjoy a drink or bite to eat as you learn about cane toads, tadpole trapping and more!

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.

Find out how you can get involved in The Great Cane Toad Bust community control activities, and how to help reduce the impact at your properties with tadpole traps, toad-proofing your waterbodies and more.

There are new and improved tadpole traps that uses the toad’s own toxins against them. Lures made from toxic cane toad glands tempt tadpoles into traps that can catch upwards of 4,000 in one go!
