LET’S HAVE SOME SENSE IN CROC MANAGEMENT
Risk management is part of life. Blood pressure and cholesterol control reduce the risk of cardiac disease. Speed and alcohol limits reduce the risk of road trauma. And so it must be with crocodiles.
I have been speaking with Mayor Leu and we commend the council’s request to meet Minister Miles and for an urgent public meeting with the Department of Environment, Health and Protection (EHP). I also look forward to hearing of the results of the state government’s review of crocodile management in Queensland.
When we left the Northern Territory in 1983, increasing crocodile numbers in urban areas were starting to pose a risk to humans.
