Mozambique Campaign

A Mozambique district has collected (presumably destroyed) up to 13000 crocodile eggs, in an effort to minimize human-crocodile conflict, as croc attacks have increased in recent years. Elephants and hippos are also causing problems. (News source.)

Update: Another news posting states that Mozambique will begin exporting 100,000 crocodiles to South Africa and Zimbabwe. Not sure if they are collecting and hatching eggs, or just exporting the eggs, etc. (News source.)
