Large Saltwater Crocodile in Daly River, NT Australia
This recent news item [Crocodile hunting, ABC Breakfast: 16th April 2009] again explores the idea of allowing Safari-style Hunting of Crocodiles to occur within the Northern Territory.
This is a great topic for a Science or Social Studies WebQuest exploring ecology, environmental issues, tourism, economy, and, land management.
    
Suggested Roles:
  • Crocodile Hunter
  • Wildlife Ranger/Environmental Scientist
  • Reptile Scientist
  • Government official promoting tourism
