The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.
Community engagement is an important aspect of crocodile management. Each year the department’s highly skilled wildlife officers reach out to thousands of families, school children and outdoor enthusiasts to spread the word about being Crocwise in Croc Country.
If you would like a Crocwise presentation or materials delivered to a school, workplace, community group or event, please send a request to NQeducation@des.qld.gov.au
