Mr Lindner Written Submissions Cane Toad Inquiry Report Volume 2 52 Both Cobourg people and I have additional ideas of implementation but the basic concept is still relevant. Cobourg has unique significance in Australia plant and animal collecting history in the tropics and currently has international wetlands status. With Federal and NT Government request and combined government and local resident determination Cobourg can be kept toad free. The Cobourg families are close knit and land bridge notwithstanding I consider board determination would help ensure this area have the best prospect of toad free status of the peninsula and large island options.
