Our immediate goal is the provision of humane, professional care for pet surrenders and orphaned native wildlife that can not be returned safely to the wild. The facility is home to a little over 180 animals including alligators, lizards, pigs, skunks, guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, sloths, fish and more. Our animal family comes to us from various places such as spca, wildlife rescues, reptile rescues and individual owners who can no longer care for the pet.
Equally important, the Alligator Attraction strives to provide education to the public about the natural history, importance of, and ways in which we can coexist with the rich diversity of wildlife in the world. Thousands of students, scouts, teachers, homeowners, seniors and others attend our education programs annually. As this region continues to draw new residents from urban areas, the need for advice, assistance, information, education and referrals will grow. The Alligator Attraction Wildlife Learning Center is seeking to reach a broader group of people by providing on-site & off-site programs and informational literature about preventing and reducing human-wildlife conflicts in addition to its current outreach educational services.
