Most of the 23 species of crocodilians are threatened or endangered in the wild. Essential to the preservation of these species is educating the general public on the issues and creating awareness. Reptiles are often viewed as being mean or scary and somehow less important or less worthy of our preservation efforts. At Croc Encounters we will fight this stigma by giving the general public a close- up look at these amazing animals.

Crocodilians provide us a window in the earth’s history, being one of the closest living relatives to dinosaurs. They are attentive parents and gentle mates. To the public, we will portray the big picture and show how these animals and their individual roles in an ecosystem are just as important as any other species. The importance of these animals is great, the consequences of their destruction are far- reaching, and their preservation is within our reach.

Every year thousands of hatchling alligators are sold in the pet industry. Only a small fraction of those who purchase these hatchlings are capable of properly housing them as adults. As a result many of these animals end up being euthanized, dying from improper diet and treatment, or being unlawfully released into the wild. Croc Encounters has been established as a haven for unwanted animals. While crocodilians are our main focus, we have also made it our goal to extend our haven to all unwanted reptiles including snakes, lizards and turtles. Most animal shelters are unwilling or incapable of taking in these animals. We make reptiles our main focus, and assure their proper care, treatment, and rehabilitation if necessary.

The mission of Croc Encounters is two -fold: to be a haven for unwanted reptiles, and to be an educational facility fighting the stigma associated with these animals and creating awareness for their plight in the wild.
