In August 2012 Dr Hamish Campbell and Dr Ross Dwyer joined the Australia Zoo and the Irwin’s in a field trip to the Wenlock River near Weipa to tag and track crocodiles.  The above photo shows Ross (OzTrack Scientific Data Analyst) and Hamish (OzTrack Scientific Advisor) fitting a tag to a crocodile. Tracking data from previous field trips to the Wenlock River region is stored in OzTrack.

The Cairns Post published a story on this field trip on September 6, 2012 – “Family continues work of crocodile hunter Steve Irwin on Cape York“.  It features a photo taken by Dr Hamish Campbell.
