Australia Zoo, in partnership with the University of Queensland, now manage the largest and most successful crocodile research program in the world! With so much still to learn about these apex predators, this team of croc experts continue to add to their research as they embark on the annual Croc Research Trip to study these awesome creatures - and now you can follow along!
By clicking here, you'll be transported to our live croc tracking site that includes videos and interactive maps of a variety of the crocs that have been tagged and released back into the Wenlock River on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in Cape York! You can follow their journey and come up with your own theories as to why these crocs travel the way they do!
By tracking the crocs' movement patterns and behaviours in correlation with the changing tides and environment, our research continues to reveal vital pieces of information about these ancient predators.
With so many mysteries left to solve, it's important that this vital croc research continues. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, this research remains the longest continuous study of crocodiles in the world, helping us find out more about this incredible species and how best to manage and work with communities that live alongside them.
