After the last fatality in August, calls for crocodile culling are once again resounding through the community. “The time for dithering and pandering to the radical green element is over. We need urgent action,” says Queensland Senator Ian MacDonald in response to increasing reports of crocodiles trespassing into coastal communities, including a 5-m monster seen sunning itself on a riverbank behind a primary school. Those calls are being seconded by ranchers in northern Australia who say they are losing more stock to crocodiles every year.

That list is great - that they provide that information to the public. I don't understand why they would remove a sign after only 7 days if one has been spotted. Wouldn't it be better to have different levels of warnings. Meaning - level 1 - occational sightings - level 5 known habitat.
There was one in your list spotted in a designated swimming area - said it had gotten out of the net (or into?). They should perhaps bury nets deep into the ground and make them impenatratable for those swimming holes.
I actually would like to visit one day - but would truly want to be in a very big boat for those canals. The smaller ones don't seem safe enough. They should truly just educate kids in that area from gradeschool on about their habits and common sense preventatives. It also used to bother me when some idiot would go and stand on the very edge of a 200 foot cliff to be sprayed by the surf only to slip or get hit with a wave and killed. Signs actually had to be put up telling people why this is dangerous. Unbeleivable.
