Rescues, Rehabilitation & Releases

Your donations enable croc experts, biologists, and volunteers to rescue crocodiles that are ill, injured, problematic, or being illegally held in captivity in often inhumane conditions. 

Rescued crocodiles are medically treated and rehabilitated for re-release when able. Some crocs have to remain in captivity and need your help for their constant care, food and natural habitats. 

As rare as Polar bears, American crocodiles, Crocodylus acutus, are found only in the Americas. Only through working together can we save our species for future generations. Learn More...
