CROCODILE CULLING

Crocodiles are an apex predator and crucial to the ecosystem, keeping water ways and wetlands healthy. Crocodiles eradicate the weak, sick and injured wildlife, leaving only the healthy to prosper.

Crocodiles have been around for over 240 millions years making them the oldest living reptiles. Humans need to better understand these Triassic survivors and learn how to coexist with them rather than take extreme measures and culling this amazing species.

Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin said we need to love crocodiles and appreciate them, leading the way in crocodile research science, giving a better understanding of his beloved crocs.

"Crocodiles are apex predators and an important part of our ecosystem - without them our river systems and marine environment will suffer," he said. "We need to have a better understanding of these dinosaurs before anyone makes uneducated calls for culling." - Steve Irwin 2005
