Researchers believe, however, that many of the northern quolls remaining in Queensland have learnt not to eat cane toads, and they are now experimenting with ways to increase both their populations and range.

I mean... I know learned and learnt are both technically correct and usage depends on where in the world you are from, but why does this make my head hurt and honestly makes me think the writer is from some small hick town waaaay down south?

I wonder if the ecologists are getting something out of this.

Actually, snark aside, according to TFA, it's not the sex that kills them, it's the running after it. Not unlike humans in that regard.
