Wildlife, Cake & Cocktails
About This Show
Welcome to WCC, the first podcast dedicated to Australian wildlife science and conservation!

WCC Ep.25. The Cane Toad Challenge with Prof. Rob Capon
We head up to Brisbane's northside to chat with Professor Rob Capon from the University of Queensland's Institute of Molecular Biosciences and the Cane Toad Challenge. By studying the chemical ecology of these invasive, toxic toads, Prof. Capon and his team have developed a toad-specific bait for luring tadpoles into DIY traps. We take a few minutes before his talk at the QLD Wildlife Preservation Society to discuss this fantastic new tool in the fight against invasive cane toads.
