Cane Toad Watch: In the aftermath of the oil spill there has been a heightened fear of the introduction of cane toads onto the island. Isolated specimens have been found but to date, as far as is known, they have not been breeding but all must remain vigilant.

Seagrass Watch: MIPC members are also involved in a worldwide program of seagrass monitoring. Three times a year a site off the western beach of the Little Sandhills is monitored at low tide for seagrass health and cover. Thanks to the Tangalooma Resort for provision of transport to and from the mainland to the site for our volunteers.
