Alligator Rescues in the Lower RGV
The springtime brings peak breeding season for the American Alligator. These adult alligators will wander from their natural area as they look for mates. In addition, dominant males start to drive out rivals from territories. Sometimes these roaming alligators end up in unusual places and can become problematic for the residents nearby. The South Padre Island Birding Nature Center and Alligator Sanctuary would like to share some of those encounters with these magnificent and misunderstood creatures.
