Great Human Barrier by Brittni Paul
The saltwater crocodile, or as they call them in Australia “Salties”, grow up to 23 feet long, they are the largest living crocodilian and have consequently been dubbed, the animal most likely to eat a human.
This antipathy, illegal hunting (for their skin, eggs and meat) and habitat loss continues to put pressure on the Salties population.
They’re one of the few remaining links to the prehistoric past. As predator and prey, crocodiles play a valuable role in the health of many aquatic environments. There are only 200-300k Salties left in the world.
Population management and informative efforts by the Queensland government, like CrocWatch, continue to make it possible for humans and crocs to live together.
Brittni Paul loves all things that nature has to give. Flora, fauna and the magic you can find in the little nooks and crannies of the world. The main motivation behind her work is to awaken that love in others, so that we can protect the planet we inhabit.
