Driving crocodiles into the nets
When the nets first go into a billabong, crocodiles moving around in the water are normally caught fairly quickly. However, many crocodiles spend many hours in the same position and need to be driven into the nets. Getting into the water and making a commotion is the best way of doing this, so we always make sure our volunteers don't mind getting a bit wet and muddy! Those who prefer the terrestrial mode of life can make a racket in the boat.
