Rangers have removed almost 200 saltwater crocodiles from Darwin waterways this year.
As part of the crocodile management program in the Northern Territory, 183 of the dangerous reptiles were taken from the Darwin region and 13 from other parts of the Top End, making a total of 196.
“This is slightly more than last year’s tally of 190 crocodiles but is well short of the record 274 crocodiles removed in 2004,” the Director of Conservation and Wildlife, Brett Easton, said.
Under the management plan, saltwater crocs can be caught by trapping or harpooning by the Parks and Wildlife Service.
