    You have seen the cane toad movie! Now read the book. “Cane Toads: An Unnatural History” Stephanie Lewis, Doubleday, 1989. It is a tie-in with the movie. The cover blurb says: “If Monty Python teamed up with National Geographic, the result would be CANE TOADS.”

    That’s about right.

    I like the sentiment here. Indeed, we often focus on the serious – and this field in particular lends itself to a lot of depressing stuff. But there’s a lot of pop culture (and not-so-popular writing, too) out there that one can use to laugh, and have a good time, along with reflecting upon our relationship to the environment. I have to spend more time with these movies… and I hope you’ll post more pieces like this!
