Field Trips are more fun at Gators & Friends

Animals create great teaching opportunities.

All children should have the opportunity to experience these fascinating and exotic animals up close and personal! Watching a child pet a goat or donkey for the first time is quite moving. Gators and Friends strives to bring a new found appreciation for the animals sharing the planet with us, and through this appreciation we hope to create a sense of respect. We offer the public the opportunity to see, pet, and feed animals that they may have never seen or heard of before.
