Cane Toad Busting

We’ve undertaken a few projects for conservation volunteers up here and now regularly get their emails re events when one caught Simon's attention – toad busting. With images of golf clubs and mass carnage (sorry greenies), he insited we sign up. Along we trundled with our torches and mozzie spray to do our part in minimizing the destruction caused by Cane Toads.

To his disappointment instead of whacking them we needed to pick them up, bag them and the count them at the end! Ugh! On the bright side, we did get 19 of the slimy suckers and came third place receiving a wine cooler for our trouble.

Here’s a picture of the little critters in the bag for your viewing pleasure.
