Barwick Estates supports the Stop the Toad Foundation

Barwick Estates is proud to be supporting the Stop the Toad Foundation in their fight against the inexorable spread of the cane toads toward WA. On November 3rd 2005, they launched two new wines at an art exhibition hosted by Stop the Toad Foundation patron Tim Winton. The exhibition took place at Challen & Rafferty fine art gallery, Subiaco.


The two wines are: STOP THE TOAD Chardonnay 2003 and STOP THE TOAD Cabernet Sauvignon 2001. 33% of revenue will go to Stop the Toad Foundation.

Seventy years after their release in the canefields of Queensland, cane toads have spread westward across tropical Australia at an alarming rate and are now less than 200km from the WA border. CSIRO projections suggest that cane toads could eventually spread right through WA. Every wetland, golf course and backyard from Kununurra to Esperance will make suitable habitat. We are all facing the prospect of living under a new kind of occupation.

With large areas of wetlands on their Margaret River winery & vineyard, Barwick Estates are well aware of the impact such an invasion could have on the natural habitat & fauna on their property. We were delighted to have the opportunity to support such a worthwhile cause and will giving a donation to the Stop the Toad Foundation for every bottle of wine sold.

The Stop the Toad Foundation has been established to promote the benefits of a cane toad free WA and to encourage everyone to help. It will deploy trapping, monitoring and hand-capture operations in cooperation with CALM and offers to equip and train the community to contribute to the on-ground effort.

This is a massive undertaking in every sense. But it is a project that promises to unite people from every aspect of our community. For when it comes to defending country and heritage we are convinced that Western Australians will rise to the challenge.
