Environmental Projects

1.
"Toad Population Limitors" - Co-ordinator of a local community group including children and adults removing Cane toads, an introduced species, off the streets and back yards of Mataranka and Katherine. This invasive species kills native frog, lizards, snakes, fish and even crocodiles by poisoning them. We humanely dispose of the toads by freezing them and using them as fertilizer.
