 Dr. Andy Lewis organized our entire Australian trip and led the marine component. Andy and all of the other guides hired by Andy received their degrees from James Cook University.

 Monitor Lizards are common on the island especially around the areas with humans. This individual is approximately 1 meter in length, roughly half body and half tail. A protracted drought on the island has been hard on the lizards. They were noticeably thinner this year compared to the previous year.
