Join the Gladstone office as we continue our campaign to rid the Gladstone region of the notorious pest…The Cane Toad!
The team will be catching and removing cane toads from a number of lakes around the city.
The poisonous introduced toads pose a serious threat to native wildlife. Last season we removed over 50,000 toads, and the program as a whole has successfully reduced the breeding potential by about 15000 adult toads. The project is a fantastic opportunity to involve the whole family in an activity that directly benefits the local environment.
Conservation Volunteers accommodation is not available on this project, but all levels of tourist accommodation are available in Gladstone, from backpacker hostels to high-quality hotels. A team leader collects local and visiting volunteers daily from pick-up points in the city.
