viewnews Last year on @australiazoo 's annual Crocodile Research Trip, a saltwater croc measuring over 11 feet was fitted with a GPS satellite to track the animal’s movements, diving depth and temperature.

Australian philanthropist Dick Smith who sponsored the research by funding the GPS satellite tracker affectionately named the croc OzEsauce. OzEsauce has astounded Professor Craig Franklin, whose team have been tracking crocodile movements at the University of Queensland. “OzEsauce has now travelled over 1000 kilometres, leaving the Wenlock River and heading southwards along the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, visiting Weipa along the way. He currently resides in a small river system that appears to be fringed with swamps, possibly a good place to find a mate,” he said.

Professor Craig Franklin from the University of Queensland recognises the significance of this research in protecting both crocodilians and people that frequent their habitat. Professor Franklin is concerned about the practise of setting up crocodile “exclusion” zones by the Queensland Government, which he believes lack scientific credibility and could lead to a false sense of security for locals. OzEsauce’s journey of over 1000 kilometres is hoped to assist in proving that excluding crocodiles from a certain area does not work.
OzEsauce is one of 129 individual saltwater crocodiles being tracked through the Wenlock River in Queensland’s Cape York. The Irwin family continues Steve’s research work by leading the Australia Zoo team on an annual research trip. This year’s trip will take place throughout the month of August in the hope of increasing the number of individual animals that are being tracked.

Terri Irwin, Owner of Australia Zoo was surprised to see a crocodile travel over such a long distance. “It is not unusual for crocs to travel large distances, but we were surprised to see that OzEsauce had travelled over 1000 kilometres over the wet season, a far greater distance than any of the other crocs in the program have travelled.” #crocodiles #australia #australiazoo #crochunter #steveirwin #terriirwin #conservation #wildlife @dicksmithfoods @uniofqld

k_mcswag RIP #steveirwin. I remember waking up early most mornings just to watch k9 to 5 and #thecrocodilehunter on #animalplanet most days. I remember going to the #crochuntermovie. #Steveirwin's educational and exciting show gave me a sense of adventure and curiosity about the world. Him and his wife #terriirwin were some of my role models. They helped me value #nature and respect it. Really and truly, we miss you Steve. 1mon

jules_nut WOW. In just barely 24 hours, my friends have rallied to show their support for me. I was not expecting so many donations so quickly!!! Already I am blown away by the generosity and kindness shown to me over the course of just one day. If each day were like this one until my June deadline, I'd have almost double the amount I need! Absolutely crazy. Thank you all so incredibly much. I'm humbled and grateful.

For those of you who haven't heard, I have been given the unbelievable once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Australia this summer to be one of 10 people to participate in a research expedition with the late Steve Irwin's family. I have to raise $5,000 by June 30th to be able to get there, in order to pay for my flight tickets and fees for food and lodging through Australian Geographic, who will be directing a documentary while we are down there. As a low-income college student, I don't have the means to make this lifelong dream come true on my own, so I've started a #GoFundMe website where my friends and family can make donations if they see fit. Every little bit helps!!! To read more of my story and watch videos about my trip, visit my GoFundMe link www.gofundme.com/plbrro (also in bio) - A MILLION THANKS!!! God bless. xo

jules_nut CRIKEY!!! I have some VERY exciting news; please take a moment to read this post and hear the latest development in my lucky life!

I have been blessed with the incredible privilege to be one of 10 people to join Steve Irwin's family on their annual crocodile research trip on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in Cape York, Australia. The Crocodile Hunter has been my lifelong hero, and getting to be a part of the expedition would provide me with invaluable hands-on experience in the field that will open up countless doors for me in the future. I also believe that I will gain a priceless experience that will give me a platform to share the importance of conservation with others when I return to the States.
The only barrier keeping me from pursuing this dream is the cost: my flight to Australia will cost about $2,500 and then my fee for transport, food, and lodging is another $2,500... While I am overwhelmed and honored to be offered a spot on this limited-availability research team, I do not have the funds to support this trip on my own, which is why even though I hate asking for money, I am relying on my fabulous friends and family to partner with me in this journey to make this dream come true. I have to raise $5,000 by the end of June, and while that is no small task, I have faith in the relationships I've established in my life and I believe that if God in His grace gave me this gift of a lifetime, then I should do everything I can to make it happen.
Please visit my GoFundMe website to read more about my story, watch videos about my trip, and see how you can contribute! I have about 1,000 Facebook friends and if each friend donated $5, I would be fully funded for this trip!!!! The link for my site is in my bio; thank you all so much for your support.
Peace and love,
Julia
