North Carolina Seeking Input on Alligator Management Plan

RALEIGH, N.C. — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the N.C. Alligator Task Force, established by resolution of the Commission, are holding six public forums in June to present a draft of the N.C. Alligator Management Plan and receive public input on the plan.

The draft Alligator Management Plan, developed by the N.C. Alligator Task Force, provides biological information on alligators in North Carolina, identifies knowledge gaps and additional research needed on alligators, identifies areas where alligators may be overpopulated, and recommends biological and social strategies to address alligator management issues.
