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 almost 250 animals including alligators, lizards, pigs, skunks, guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, 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.
Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center is the ultimate destination to meet these amazing animals up close and personal. Our Hands-On Adventures create memories and photo opportunities that will last a life time. We work hard to create an inviting atmosphere for children (and adults!) to learn about and interact with amazing reptiles and amphibians. We love these creatures and hope you will too!
Equally important, the Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center 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 resources will grow. The Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center is seeking to reach a broader group of people by providing on-site & off-site programs as part of its current outreach educational services.
