Anyone wanting to learn how to catch and dispatch probably the most invasive animal pest in the Northern Rivers can join a Cane Toad Muster at Bray Park’s Chinaman Gardens this Thursday 15 December from 7.45pm (NSW time).

The toads are poisonous to predators such as snakes and birds, and large toads are known to eat small native animals. Cane toads also compete with native frogs for food and habitat.

Invasive species officer Pamela Gray will give a short talk beforehand to explain threats of the cane toad and will be available after the muster to answer questions.

Those attending need a torch each, and will need to wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants and covered shoes.

Children must be accompanied by an adult over age 18 in order to participate.

Chinaman Gardens is the reserve at the corner of Kyogle Road and Riveroak Drive, Bray Park. Participants are asked to meet at the park entry point on Riveroak Drive.

For information contact Sally Jacka on (02) 6670 2561 or [email protected] or Pamela Gray on (02) 6670 2778, email [email protected].

The Muster is an initiative of the Tweed and Byron shire councils’ Bush Futures Project and is supported by the NSW Environmental Trust.
