Written Submissions Mr Denigan Volume 2 Cane Toad Inquiry Report 37 SUBMISSION NO. 2 Mr Michael Denigan, Micks Whips and Leather Goods PO Box 391 NOONAMAH NT 0837 24 April 2003 Sessional Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development re: Progressive Entry into the Northern Territory of Cane Toads Dear Committee With the entry of cane toads into the Northern Territory, there is a loss of population of reptiles, including crocodiles , frilled neck lizards and goannas. I believe that a small harvesting programme aimed at Safari type tourism, could be factored into the equation, which would help manage the effect of the cane toad on the crocodile population. Frilled neck lizards will ultimately be hard hit. Perhaps an environmentally sustainable harvesting of frilled neck lizards and goannas could be established to prevent their demise. Yours sincerely, Michael Denigan PS: I would be interested in participating in such projects
