’Meeting was success’: EHP
A Department of Environment and Heritage Protection spokesman has declared the crocodile meeting a success.
“There was support for targeted crocodile messages in North Queensland using different communication tools,” they said. “We discussed the use of social media to target audiences and the need for greater engagement with stakeholders in the education process.”
As crocodiles were an important part of the local wildlife and an attraction for tourists, it was important for stakeholders to “work with the government is delivering croc wise messages to the public, and we look forward to working closely with Councils, SLSQ, tourism and community organisations.
“We are committed to upholding a balanced approach towards managing crocodiles, and from (last Wednesday’s) meeting; we know this is a view shared by the majority of Queenslanders.”
