Gator Week returns to Wild Florida with Gator Themed Activities, Demos and Free Admission

It’s no secret that Wild Florida know a thing or two about alligators, and to share this knowledge and passion, the're hosting a one-of-a-kind event centered around one of Florida’s most recognizable, yet misunderstood animals… the American alligator!

Gator Week at Wild Florida

Wild Florida will once again be hosting Gator Week from May 29 – June 3, 2023,

To many, alligators are simply fierce carnivores on the hunt, but that’s not actually the case. Like many misunderstood creatures, myths develop based on a lack of knowledge. Because of this, Wild Florida are dedicating an entire week to educating and debunking many common myths surrounding these reptiles, along with some of their reptile cousins, through live demonstrations and interactive experiences.
