Written Submissions Parks & Wildlife Commission NT Volume 2 Cane Toad Inquiry Report 13 Mr BONSON: Probably radio, TV and maybe you know information out to schools and stuff like that to be probably incorporated in that as well? Madam CHAIR: So, we could be more focused in our recommendations in certainly a variety of areas, so with various people whove come before the committee, weve actually in a sense tasked them back to go and provide more information if theyre able to, if youre not, not a problem but if you can and youre willing to, that would be useful information. Dr WOINARSKI: I guess this is another case where its co-ordination of the efforts of different agencies and individuals, its really important as well, its not sort of the direct task of Parks and Wildlife to try to address all those constituents out there and its a matter of picking out which of the various players involved, should target particular interest groups. Madam CHAIR: Absolutely. Any recommendations in line that youd be happy to provide to us and say well you know in this area you know, these people could perform these roles and in this area well we exist in and obviously were very clearly looking for an opportunity for a collaborative drive as well. But so from the fine detail of the expected resource requirements because Parks and Wildlife, youve already I know been as youve said wiping various other programs to meet the need right now. Mr BONSON: Well one of the things I suppose Delias leading to is that the idea might be to you know develop some kind of working group, not so its not always you know going to go back on you guys to actually deal with the issues and do all the work I suppose by yourselves, when we develop the idea of a working group and whos supposed to be on that we can resource it properly and away we go. Dr WOINARSKI: No, we recognise that some people are better co-ordinators to different groups. Dr LAWSON: Oh sure. Madam CHAIR: Were travelling throughout the Territory in May to hold public hearings as well, so certainly the evidence that we gather through that public process will be far more expansive than the expert evidence weve had to date although everyone who has appeared to date has said: I am not a cane toad expert. Dr LAWSON: There is no cane toad expert . Mr WOOD: Ian Morris must get, well on the way to being one, I think. Madam CHAIR: Hes a frog expert!
