Animals: Some of the animals that live in the park are , saltwater crocodile ,short-eared rock-wallaby ,black-neck stork ,plumed whistling ducks ,Antilopine Kangaroo and black wallaroos.
Vegetation: There are more than 2,000 species of plants. Many of the plants have been used by local Aboriginal people for generations as bush foods, medicines and weaving materials.
Tourists: Each year more than 200,000 people visit Kakadu national park. Most people visit in the dry season months (June to September). last year (2016) park rangers delivered 1,155 activities to 43,325 tourists.
One of the of the effects that have caused danger to the environment is mining. Since 2009 the Ranger Uranium mine leaks 100,00L of contaminated water into the ground underneath the Kakadu national park every single day.
One of the changes that is occurring in climate change: The sea levels are rising ,saltwater erosion and the temperature is increasing.
There is a serious risk to the fresh water wet lands because of the salt water erosion. The salt could end up in the fresh water systems and destroy the wetlands. I think this is happing because of the rising temperatures.
