Captured at the Everglades National Park – Shark Valley, Miami ,Florida. The American Alligator were depleted from many parts of their range as a result of market hunting and loss of habitat. In 1967, the alligator was listed as an endangered species meaning it was considered in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range.A combined effort by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, state wildlife agencies in the South, saved these unique animals. The Endangered Species Act outlawed alligator hunting. As the alligator began to make a comeback, states established alligator population monitoring programs and used this information to ensure alligator numbers continued to increase
