Watergum Community Cane Toad Busting – Tweed POSTPONED

March 24, 2022 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm

Watergum Community Cane Toad Busting – Tweed Shire

Come along and work together with your community to control cane toads!

We know times for many have been very tough lately for the Tweed Shire community and everyone’s been working hard to clean up and get back on their feet.

If you’re looking for an activity to take a break and spend an hour or two in the environment and connect with like minded people then you’re invited to come along to our next cane toad busting session on Thursday March 24th.

Cane toad numbers have exploded with the influx of waterbodies and they are still breeding rapidly during the end of this toad season. Many of our native wildlife have been displaced from the recent events and we can give them a helping hand by removing cane toads from the environment.

This session will be taking place in Tweed Heads West, the location will be sent to you in the reminder emails once you register your place.

We will welcome you with an educational session that covers everything you need to know about cane toads. Then we will split into groups and compete to clear the area of cane toads.

Once you are back we will count all the toads and a prize will be giving to the group who collects the most!

This is a great activity for the whole family. The skills you acquire can be put into use on your own properties, reclaim your gardens from cane toads!

Some equipment is provided but we suggest you bring your own bucket with a lid, gloves, torch and pick-up stick (optional). Please wear enclosed shoes as this is an outdoor event.

So come along to this toad busting session if you’d like to take a break in the environment during this stressful time.

Let’s make a difference, let’s impact cane toads!

Please ensure that you are aware of current Covid-19 restrictions and if you feel unwell, please cancel your registration and stay at home.
