Meet the Lord of the Cane Toads

Date:
28 March 2019

Time:
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Location
Conference Rooms, Level 3, 18 Wally’s Walk, Macquarie University


Join us to hear Professor Rick Shine talk about his research on Australia’s Most Unpopular Animal – the Cane Toad.

Find out about how Cane Toads are adapting to Australia, and how the Australian wildlife is adapting to this alien amphibian. And as well as documenting the Toad’s ecological impacts, Rick and his team have discovered ways to control Toad numbers, and to help the native fauna coexist with these toxic invaders.

Along the way, Rick has won the top awards for research in the state (New South Wales Scientist of the Year) and the country (Prime Minister’s Prize for Science), as well as for science communication.
