Founding of ACES


***** COMING SOON *****


American Crocodile Education Sanctuary was founded in 2006 by Cherie and Vince Rose in Punta Gorda, Belize. The sanctuary would become home to numerous ill and/or injured crocodiles, and problematic crocodiles whose aggressive behavior proved to be dangerous to humans, a behavior usually resulting from being fed. ACES, permitted by the Belize Forest Department, provided a home to crocs whose only options were captivity or death, and in turn helped to keep communities throughout Belize safe.
