Crocodile Trapping

The NT Government currently maintains 39 separate traps in the Darwin Expanded Management Zone to trap and remove saltwater crocodiles. The traps are regularly baited and checked and the public is advised to not interfere with these traps as they are the property of the NT Government and part of a public safety management strategy. Anyone found interfering or damaging crocodile traps is liable to legal proceedings and penalties under the Territory Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act.
