RENOWNED WA adventurer and conservationist Malcolm Douglas has died in a car crash at his Broome wildlife park early today.


Malcolm Douglas championed Aboriginal causes in the late 60s and early 70s, before it was fashionable. He set up crocodile farms and protection areas when they were still declared as pests. He was doing nature documentaries when we had Just The Bush and not an environment. He did what Steve Irwin did, when Steve was still in primary school.
