Come along to learn how to protect the local wildlife, and help collect toads.
Cane Toads are listed as a Key Threatening Process under schedule 3 of the NSW TSC act as they pose threat to local native wildlife. They are poisonous to predators such as snakes and birds. Large toads are known to eat small native animals. The toads also compete with native frogs for food and habitat.
Twenty-eight of native frogs have been identified in the Byron Shire. Council is working in partnership with Goonengerry Landcare to control the local cane toad population.
This program has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its ‘Environmental Trust’.
