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!
