North coast locals worried about the cane toad pest can learn from an expert about the latest techniques to control them at a seminar in Murwillumbah on Wednesday, 11 December.
Researchers from the University of Sydney will discuss the new techniques in cane toad control, at the seminar in Murwillumbah Civic Centre’s Canvas and Kettle Room from 10am-noon.
Dr Matt Greenlees will speak about cane toad biology, their impact on native fauna and ways to control and eradicate the invasive species.
Dr Greenlees is a member of the University of Sydney laboratory conducting the research under the direction of Professor Rick Shine.
Tweed Shire Council’s pest management program leader, Pam Gray, said Dr Greenlees would describe the latest techniques being used and detail how residents can potentially use these methods to control cane toads in the Tweed.
Spots are limited at the seminar and interested people are urged to contact Pamela Gray on 02 6670 2778 to book a seat.
