How to get involved


 
ToadScan is a freely available website and mapping facility for local communities anywhere in Australia. Data entered into ToadScan will help to coordinate on ground control activities, and report the situation with cane toads at any time and within any region. By recording information about cane toads in your area, you will be helping to address the problems they are causing in your local area and across the country. 

Collecting and recording data

Before entering data, you will need to Register. Once registered, you can enter as little or as much information as you like, but the more data you enter, the more useful ToadScan will be for the management of cane toads in your area. If you have registered as part of another species project (e.g RabbitScan) you do not need to register again.

1. How many cane toads are there in your area?

By mapping sightings of cane toads, ToadScan will be able to map where cane toads occur in your region to help guide control activities. The number of cane toads seen can help to decide what course of action to take. Reporting areas where no cane toads have been seen is also important.

2. What damage (or problems) are cane toads causing?

If cane toads are a problem in your area, record what damage (or problems) they are causing. For example, eating pet food or contaminating water. By recording problems, this information can be considered across your region, and can help to alert others to be watchful for similar problems. The aim should be to reduce the damage cane toads cause in the long term.

3. What control is being undertaken?

Recording whether cane toads are being controlled at your site can help to evaluate the success of activities, and identify suitable management options, ie how best to control cane toads in your region. It can also help to identify whether there are gaps in the areas being controlled. Mapping where control has occurred can produce useful information for others in your area, especially so group control programs are successful.
