Stakeholders should be clear about what will be monitored during their program.
While the preceding steps cover what type of monitoring is to be done, there should also be discussion about exactly what information must be collected, and why. Some issues to consider before monitoring begins include:
- Who is the information for and how will they use it?
- Who will gather the information?
- Who will analyse the information?
- What type of strategy will be put in place to ensure collected data are promptly fed back (eg to landholders or agencies) in an appropriate and useful form?
ToadScan is a community website that allows you to record sightings of cane toads in your local area. Cane toads can pose a serious risk to domestic pets, native wildlife, and people if they are handled incorrectly. If you see a cane toad in your local area, record sightings into ToadScan.
By recording sightings, you can help prevent the problems that cane toads cause, and help protect the areas we all love. Land managers can use the information you record to undertake a coordinated cane toad control program, such as a Toad Muster event.
Use ToadScan data to identify areas where toads are a problem, and coordinate control with local land managers.
You can access ToadScan via the website – www.toadscan.org.au or download the ‘FeralScan’ App and follow the cane toad prompts
