Parks Australia will warn people not to fish while standing in water. Parks Australia will maintain fish cleaning facilities at boat ramps. The crocodile safety signs state:72. Danger Crocodiles inhabit this area. Attacks cause injury or death. Do not enter the water. Keep away from the waters edge. Do not clean fish near the waters edge. Remove all fish and food waste. Crocodile Experts Because this Inquest was conducted at the same time as that of Mr Tran, I had the benefit of hearing from the personnel from Kakadu National Park and also from the Parks and Wildlife Commission in the Northern Territory about the issues affecting both Inquests. 73. 74. It is unlikely that there are any persons who would have more expertise in dealing with crocodiles in the Northern Territory. I will collectively refer to them as the Rangers and I wish to thank them very much for their attendance and assistance. 75. The first to give evidence was Garry Lindner. Dealing with crocodiles runs in his family. His father Dave Lindner was heavily involved with crocodiles and captured the 5.1 metre crocodile named Sweetheart now found in the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Since 1986 he has been working with crocodiles and is the Crocodile Management Supervisor and Coastal Surveillance Supervisor for Parks Australia. 76. Calvin Murakami gave evidence also. He is a Kakadu Ranger and has been working with crocodiles for 20 years. 13
