On this week’s episode of Boiling Point, Chantelle and Alex interview ecologist Chris Jackson.

The cane toad onslaught reached the WA Kimberley two years ago – but researchers were just ahead. Trialling a crazy scheme to train quolls that cane toads were NOT a tasty snack they dropped 10,000 nausea-inducing cane toad sausages…did it work?!
