CONSERVATION IS A BIG JOB,
BUT WE HAVE A PLAN.
The St Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park works with other zoos and organizations around the world to ensure the survival of the many species in our collection. Today, as exotic species in even the most remote corners of the world suffer from habitat loss, overexploitation and environmental pollution, our conservation efforts are more important than ever.

WHAT IS AN SSP?
The Species Survival Plan (SSP) program began in 1981 as a cooperative population management and conservation program for selected species in zoos and aquariums in North America. Each SSP manages the breeding of a species in order to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining population that is both genetically diverse and demographically stable.
