Armed & Beautiful

Alligators are an important part of Florida’s landscape and play a valuable role in the ecology of our state’s wetlands. Alligators are predators and help keep other aquatic animal populations in balance. In 1975 these beautiful animals were placed on the endangered species list, no longer endangered but still federally protected in the wild, the center aims to help the cause through the species survival plan set up by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Your sponsorship could help raise awareness for a vulnerable species and provide expert medical care year round.

Too Cute

The Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center is buzzing about our THREE African Spur Thigh Tortoises, Yoshi, Littlefoot, and their big brother Rudolph The Center is proud to be a leader in Turtle conservation, education and science, and invites the public to celebrate and support tortoises by visiting them year round.
