      Hello,
      I would like to ask what the crocodile means to the Yirrganydji, please? I have read that it is important to remove them for safety and to not cull them. It is also of concern the impact the loud diesel outboard motor has on the crocodile, and the appearance of the boat is threatening. How often are crocs monitored and by who? Was this a traditional task and by whom was the monitoring done by? What is the significance of the crocodile in their dreaming, please? There is obviously a deep respect.
      Thank you

        Hi Tabitha,

        I’m curious about your interest in knowing the meaning of crocodile to the Yirrgandyi people. Can you tell us more about how this information will influence your design?

        Regarding crocodile monitoring, we’ve answered a similar question to yours here. As suggested in the design brief, you can watch the The Crocodile Removalists on ABC to learn more about Dawul Wuru’s crocodile monitoring program.

        Thanks,
        Jean
