Explore, Learn, and Make a Difference.

Seeing these wonderful creatures in action is an experience to remember. We encourage our guests to take photos of their alligator adventures as well as our many other reptiles and amphibians.
We believe that by educating people about these interesting animals in a hands on manner, we can dispel some of the myths regarding them while also growing our conservation efforts.

Florida is home to roughly 1.25 million alligators. As alligator habitats become smaller, we need to be aware of our surroundings when at fresh-water areas.
