Kakadu National Park is a two-part series that records the scientific programs carried out in the Magela Creek marine environment and the surrounding flood plains of the Alligator Rivers region, to measure the possible impact of toxic, heavy metals effluent from uranium mining. In 1981 there were four uranium mines within the newly formed Kakadu National Park - a vast wetlands that is biologically one of the richest areas in Australia. Kakadu forms the catchment area for the South and East Alligator Rivers, 200 kilometres east of Darwin in the Northern Territory. As a result of the Fox Report, the office of the Supervising Scientist was set up to oversee the environmental aspects of mining operations in the area and to assist in the establishment of standards and procedures for environmental protection. At that time the Ranger uranium mine was in operation and three others, Jabiluka, Koongarra and Nabarlek were being proposed. Produced by Film Australia from archival material filmed for the Supervising Scientist Department of Home Affairs and Environment. Copyright - 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.
