Pauline Hanson calls for a Cane Toad Cull

Last week I wrote to the Prime Minister suggesting a cane toad cull with the help of the public. There are over 200 million of these vermin cane toads across the country.Since their misguided introduction to deal with cane beetle in the North Queensland town of Gordonvale in 1935, cane toad numbers have exploded beyond the borders of Queensland and are having an enormous effect on native Australian species.Unlike native frogs that lay between 1,000 and 2,000 eggs during their breeding cycle, toads will lay between 8,000 and 35,000.Their poisonous toxin is deadly to many native species including lizards, quolls, dingoes and crocodiles. Adult cane toads will eat almost anything it can fit in its mouth, including dead animals and pet food scraps. Their appetite knows no boundaries.While I recognise the federal governments $2 million dollar research into cane toads in 2008, it is clear to most Australians, no solution was found to eradicate their existence.When rabbits plagued our nation, a sizeable reward was posted for the biological control of the species. Other invasive species such as European carp have been eradicated from waterways using biological measures and I believe it is time our Federal Parliament takes a swift, bipartisan approach into the eradication of this pest species.I have encouraged the Prime Minister to introduce a 3 month bounty over the Summer months to help reduce the breeding numbers throughout Queensland, New South Wales, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.A 10 cent reward for the collection of each cane toad, I believe would encourage most Australians living with the pest to take an active roll in reducing their numbers until a biological measure is developed.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #CaneToads #Queensland #Pest

Pauline Hanson Calls to Exterminate Cane Toads

Last week I wrote to the Prime Minister suggesting a cane toad cull with the help of the public.

There are over 200 million of these vermin cane toads across the country.

Since their misguided introduction to deal with cane beetle in the North Queensland town of Gordonvale in 1935, cane toad numbers have exploded beyond the borders of Queensland and are having an enormous effect on native Australian species.

Unlike native frogs that lay between 1,000 and 2,000 eggs during their breeding cycle, toads will lay between 8,000 and 35,000.

Their poisonous toxin is deadly to many native species including lizards, quolls, dingoes and crocodiles. Adult cane toads will eat almost anything it can fit in its mouth, including dead animals and pet food scraps. Their appetite knows no boundaries.

A 10 cent reward for the collection of each cane toad, I believe would encourage most Australians living with the pest to take an active role in reducing their numbers until a biological measure is developed.

Here’s my letter to the Prime Minister:

HAPPY FATHERS DAY FELLAS. I've spent the weekend at another great Birdsville Races!!!! A quick trip up Big Red before heading back to Brisbane, before heading to Longreach this week.Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend and made such a spectacular Outback Experience. Thank you to everyone who dug deep and helped us raise some much needed money for the Royal Flying Doctors. Every dollar counts and I know regions like Birdsville heavily rely on the service of the RFDS.Thanks to Paul Murray for coming out with me to experience the weekend also.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #PaulMurrayLive #PML

Pauline attends Birdsville Races | Special message for fathers day

I spent last weekend at another great Birdsville Races!!!!

A quick trip up Big Red before heading back to Brisbane, before heading to Longreach this week.

Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend and made such a spectacular Outback Experience. Thank you to everyone who dug deep and helped us raise some much needed money for the Royal Flying Doctors. Every dollar counts and I know regions like Birdsville heavily rely on the service of the RFDS.

Thanks to Paul Murray for coming out with me to experience the weekend also.
Being out there for Father’s Day, I couldn’t help but think of all the great dads out there as well as those who’ve gone through and are still going through our abysmal family law system.

I haven’t given up on family law reform.

As you’re no doubt aware, the Government gave me a review into Family Law within the first 12 months of being elected. Senator Brandis at the time acknowledged that I’d fought hard to have the first inquiry into the laws since they were first introduced. That review is almost finalised and in the last week of Parliament, I was hoping to have parts of that preliminary report released.

Family Law Changes Officially Announced

Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough support on the Senate floor, so we have to wait for a few more months. Once that report is released, I expect to go hard on having any sensible recommendations implemented.

It’s not acceptable for any parent to be withheld from seeing their children if they’re fit and willing to play a role in their lives.

No parent should have the right to deny you access to your kids if you’re not a druggie or physical threat to them.

I want to see change and I don’t plan on giving up. This means too much to so many men and their families to have the family laws changed. We must start with the laws so that the courts have no choice but to give balance back to both parents.
