They will improve general awareness of the scope and impact of the cane toad problem, and broadly engage the community, formally and informally, in the process of solving it. A major objective of the education program will be to keep the Australian public fully informed on the intentions, developments and progress of this program. The cane toad education program will also include innovative programs that engage community interest and participation in sustainable development and the nurturing of ecological health.
