A Baru has recently been sighted in Melville bay out from Ski Beach and the Boat Club.
Dhimurru would like to remind the people living in NE Arnhem Land of the dangers of Baru (Saltwater Crocodiles).
Saltwater Crocodiles inhabit all water environments in this area i.e. rivers, creeks, billabongs, lagoons, beaches and river mouths.
Swimming is not recommended and extreme care should be taken near bodies of water.
Do not take risks!
Be very cautious when launching boats and do not dispose of fish carcasses near boat launching sites or camping areas.
Please phone Dhimurru on 8939 2700 or drop into our office to report any Baru sightings or if you have any questions regarding Baru management in the IPA.
