Reptiles in Nth Australia have undergone a very rapid decline in numbers, much of it due to the impact of cane toads. ; Many species of Varanids (our goannas) our larger elapid snakes, some crocodile species, have all suffered big declines, some over 95% as they have no ability to withstand the toxin of cane toads.
ReptileWatch is a project designed to help people understand our reptiles better, and to understand environmental issues relating to reptiles and to look for management strategies that can help our reptiles cope with changing environments.
