September Meeting - Why Would You Want to Work on Crocodiles

Wednesday Sep 11 7:00 pm

Duration: 1.5 Hours


This presentation will take place after the Club's AGM.

Zoologist Adam Britton will explore the fascinating world of crocodiles from the perspective of a crocodile scientist, or more accurately a slightly obsessed croc nerd. Crocodiles are not the kind of creatures that most people relate to, let alone actually like, but Adam sees crocodiles in a slightly different light. He is keen to share some of this with others, so they can see crocodiles from a different perspective, and also to get across just some of the challenges that crocodiles and people face when trying to live together.

Adam and his wife Erin have worked on crocodiles for decades and have built up quite a few crazy stories over the years, and he’ll be sharing some of these in this presentation, whether it’s pioneering research projects, working with famous TV presenters, or breaking world records, crocodiles have a knack of attracting some pretty interesting tales.

Adam Britton has been working on crocodiles for nearly 30 years. He operates the private consultancy Big Gecko with Erin. He’s also an adjunct at Charles Darwin University.

*This FREE event is organised by the NT Field Naturalists' Club and is open to members of the public. We hope to see you there.
