Are you part of a coordinated Cane Toad control program?

Working in a coordinated pest control group with your neighbours (or local community) is the best way to reduce a cane toad population and maximise the long-term benefits of control. If you need advice on how to establish a control group, contact your local pest management authorities.

Bring your community online

ToadScan hosts a new Community Networking facility for you to create or join an online group to share your observations with other people in your local area (e.g. local council or Landcare group). By joining a group, you can (1) keep members informed about current problems, (2) work together with members to target problem areas, and (3) measure the outcomes of control across your local area.
