Australia | Biodiversity in Kakadu NP being “decimated” by invasive toad species: biologist

CANBERRA, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- Biodiversity in Australia's iconic Kakadu National Park has been "decimated" by invasive cane toads, a leading expert has warned.


Cane toads were introduced to Australia to eradicate sugar cane beetles in Queensland in the 1930s. They have since spread across northern Australia, devouring crops and depleting native fauna populations.
