Solar Whisper on the Daintree River

We have had some very large tides this week with the full moon so we have been watching carefully for any nesting activity. On Saturday we found Elizabeth (2.6m croc) crashing around in long grass at the top of Pig Island which will be a great spot for us to watch the whole nesting process.

In our area we have about 5 or 6 nesting females laying an average of 50 eggs which adds up to about 300 per year. We are still looking at about 4 or 5 hatchlings from this year and only 1 one year old from last year when we had the floods from cyclone Monica. There is no chance of a crocodile population explosion.

Thanks for your support.
