We harvest alligators grown on our farm and from wild alligator hunts.
CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, also known as the Washington Convention) is a multilateral treaty to protect endangered plants and animals.

- Alligator hunting requires the use of CITES (Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species) tags issued by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for use in their Alligator program. Many wildlife species in trade are not endangered, but the existence of an agreement to ensure the sustainability of the trade is important to safeguard these resources for the future. It is a requirement that a CITES tag is placed in the tail of ALL alligators harvested.
