Full description

Estuarine crocodile location and temperature observations recorded using acoustic telemetry since 2007 on Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia.

The data comes from sensors attached to more than sixty estuarine crocodiles. The sensors continuously transmit observations via acoustic signal. Receivers deployed along river systems and the coast of the peninsula record data whenever a crocodile is within range. The project team periodically retrieves data from storage on the receiver.

Variables measured include location, depth, environmental temperature and body temperature. Location data is available for all crocodiles. Temperature and depth data is only available for some crocodiles. Data is available from 2007 onwards, and the transmitters will last for around 10 years.

The University of Queensland, Australia Zoo and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service collected the data.
