Cane Toads – the Alien Invasion

The Kimberley is undoubtedly an unique, pristine wilderness which we are striving to protect not only from industrialization (Save the Kimberley) but also the invasion of the greatest threat to our eco-system, the Cane Toad (Bufo Marinus).

Introduced to Qld from Venezuela in 1935, the Cane Toad has few known predators and is wiping out reptiles, rodents and marine life wherever it goes. With toxic glands and poisonous roe, it not only has the ability to defend itself, but also kill the animal once it has digested the eggs of the toad itself.

Keep up to date with the latest information at Frog Watch who are fending off this alien invasion.

When you are travelling through the NT and WA, be aware and report any sightings 1800 243 546. See the photos below to help you identify the Cane Toad and help protect the Native Frogs.
