"Bravely wading through crocodile-rich waters, Aquatic Engineers, Tara and Trevor, monitor the health of the environment surrounding nearby mines. They check fish and invertebrate populations by sending an electric current into the river. This temporarily stuns the creatures so that they can be be collected and examined. They employ the protection of a local crocodile catcher to keep them safe, not only from the large saltwater crocodiles, but also water buffaloes and wild pigs."
