Cane Toad Busting
January 20, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
Come along to this one of a kind event – Cane Toad Busting – where you and your family can directly help Logan’s wildlife and natural environment.
Learn all about our valued native frogs at Eagleby Wetlands while also hunting for one of our most unwanted pests, the cane toad.
You will learn everything you need to know about cane toads as well as how get rid of them in your own backyard. Bring the family and compete for prizes!
The cane toad is poisonous at all stages of its life cycle. They are voracious feeders that consume a wide variety of native insects, frogs, small reptiles, mammals and even birds. Collecting and removing cane toads remains one of the best methods to control them!
During this family friendly event, you will learn how to identify cane toads, how to collect them by hand and then how to remove them from the environment.
Please bring your own bucket (ideally with a lid), a torch, rubber gloves and a litter picker (optional) and wear enclosed shoes.
Logan City Council has partnered up 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.
This event is part of Logan’s Cane Toad citizen science trial with Watergum, which also includes the Cane Toad Tadpole Trapping and Information Sessions, next scheduled for 17 February at Park Ridge.
Please ensure you are signed in and present by 6.15 pm.
Ages: Family friendly. This event is suitable for children aged over 8 years old (parental /guardian supervision is mandatory).
