Spring Film Series – Cane Toads

Posted by Robyn, April 16, 2013

This documentary, Presented by Sustainable Sante Fe, details the spread of an invasive species of Hawaiian sugar-cane toads through Australia in a botched effort to introduce them as counter pests to the grey back beetle that was wreaking havoc on the country’s sugar cane fields. The true story is narrated with great humor and does a wonderful job of explaining the dangers of introducing alien flora and fauna into an ecosystem. This free showing will be at Santa Fe Community College, NW Campus, room WA-104.
