Named after the Discovery Channel, this beautiful female is an important addition to our research. Through tracking her movements, we have been able to identify her preferred nesting habitat. She could help us to learn so much more about female nesting behaviour.

This research is made possible each year with the help of Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, The University of Queensland and our generous sponsors. This vital program is the longest continuous study of crocodiles in the world and helps us to live alongside them and help them, as a vulnerable Australian species.

We invite you to be part of our annual crocodile research trip by joining us, donating or sponsoring your very own gorgeous crocodile!
