Mission Report - Tuesday 4th May 2010

We thought that was it for the cane toad season, but I took a phone call from a journalist visiting from Sweden doing a story on invasive animals in Australia. She wanted to come out toading one night so a few quick text messages and the promise of Harry's dams at Mororo and we had about 10 CIA volunteers turn up to do our thing.

In just 90 minutes and covering only two dams, we picked up over 250 toads. Scott and I got some great pictures and Carla from Sweden got to pick up her first toad (and squeal for her microphone interview). Thanks to all who came out that night, especially the girls. We had great fun (as usual) and hopefully Kathie's swearing on radio in Sweden will not cause an international incident!
