Episode 4: Ecology Research From Around the World, Part 1 – Crocs

Here we look into the first of 3 big ecology research projects from around the globe and break them down for you. We look at why they chose to conduct the research, what they hoped to find, and what they actually found! We first look at Saltwater Crocodiles and ‘migration/movement’ behaviour, explaining how they use tide and ocean currents to travel. It’s incredible how smart they are!

We are adventurers and travellers at heart but also perfectionists, so we spend a LOT of time researching our tours. We believe these tours are the most comprehensive, best value tours for all of these regions. I’ll buy you a beer if I’m wrong!

With Cockatours owner & ecologist, plus either his phenomenal Kimberley/NT guide or Cape York chef, these tours are jam packed with experiences and tasty food! We hate to say, but our job isn’t letting you go home skinny! Being owner-operated we can be very flexible on the road, make for a fun, stress-free tour! We are super excited with the tours we’ve produced for 2020 & we can’t wait to share the adventure! We aim to make our tours senior friendly tours and we craft each tour with that in mind! Tours operate between May – September each year, departing from Cairns.

We also run leadership development camps for youth, speak in schools and do photography tours and lessons. Customised bookings, bus hire and bucks & hens parties are also welcome!
