In 1935, cane toads were introduced to Australia. This proved to be a terrible mistake. Australia now has hundreds of millions of toxic toads advancing across the country. How can we stop native predators from eating these highly poisonous toads?

In this episode, we chat with Dr Ella Kelly and Dr Naomi Indigo about their innovative efforts to save the endangered northern quoll – involving not-so-silly sausages, toad-smart traits, and the smell of “death”.

To read more about Ella and Naomi’s research, check out their peer-reviewed scientific papers (we provide a list on our website). You can also find Ella and Naomi on Twitter (@ecology_ella and @NaomiIndigo).
