Watergum Cane Toads – Gold Coast Toad Busters

February 15, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Watergum Community Cane Toad Busting – Gold Coast

CIty of Gold Coast has partnered with not-for-profit community environment group Watergum to bring cane toad control to the Gold Coast this season.


Cane toads in the Gold Coast cause declines in our native wildlife, posion domestic pets and have negative impacts on our local agricultural industries.


We are working together to humanely and effectively control this pest species, and create safe havens for biodiversity!


Join our Toad Bust at 6:30pm on Thursday the 15 Feb 2023 at Schuster Park, and work together to control cane toads! This is a great activity for the whole family.


Toad busting is a fun event, appropriate for the whole family! Come along to meet some like-minded individuals, learn some new toad busting skills and make a difference for our environment!


How the event will run:


Watergum staff will welcome you with a brief educational talk. Then we will split into groups and work together to clear the park of as many cane toads as we can!


Please wear closed in shoes and appropriate clothing for the outdoors at night. If you have a toad busting kit, please bring it along on the night! If not, Watergum will have gear available to use.


Toad busting kit equipment:

  • Bucket with a lid
  • Rubber or garden gloves
  • Torch
  • Pick up stick optional

We can’t wait to see you there and work together to make a real difference!


Spaces are limited so please register to attend.
