What can you do?

Everybody can pitch in to help stop cane toads spreading to new areas, or by controlling them in their yard or local area.

If you've visited an area where cane toads are present, particularly if you are travelling to an area without cane toads, check your vehicle and trailer, and any camping equipment (tents, swags or boots) for any toads that may hitch a ride with you.


Check your load for a cane toad. Cane toads are great stowaways, so check your vehicle and luggage carefully.

In Western Australia, if you suspect you have found a cane toad, isolate it (with care) and immediately contact:

Make a note of the date, time and location where you saw the toad and, if you can, take a photo of the suspect.
