Bufo Marinus (cane toad) to be included on the declared pest list

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Kevin Hodgson
44 Henderson Road

Total Signatures - 360

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 26/03/2019

Tabled Date: 26/03/2019

Responded By: Hon Mark Furner MP on 26/04/2019

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the need for the species bufo marinus (cane toad) to be included on the Declared Pest list. This species is heinously detrimental to local flora and fauna and must be recognised as such. Steps must then be taken to begin the eradication process.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to order that the Bufo Marinus (cane toad) be included on the Declared Pest list.
