Studying impacts of Cane Toads on a population of Freshwater Crocodiles and a summary of known impacts to date.

Measurable impacts on native fauna by the Cane Toad (Bufo marinus) have been limited by a lack of information on natural populations prior to Cane Toad invasion. A long-term study of Australian Freshwater Crocodiles (Crocodylus johnstoni) in the McKinlay River region of the Northern Territory is providing an opportunity to compare in detail the short- and long-term impacts of Cane Toads on crocodile population dynamics. An overview of the study will be presented together with early findings on how crocodiles are affected by toads.
