Conservancy of Southwest Florida
This past weekend the Conservancy of Southwest Florida celebrated its reopening after a significant renovation. The organization began as an environmental advocate and now operates a 21-acre nature preserve next to the Naples Zoo. Injured wildlife is brought to the Conservancy, where staff attempts to repair the damage. Some animals are able to return to their natural environment, while others remain on display at the Conservancy's nature center.
This baby alligator is in an educational display. When it outgrows the display, it will be transported to a larger facility.
