Program Description:

Few states have a relationship with an animal in the way that Florida does with the alligator. Whether it’s a school mascot, being wrestled at a tourist attraction, or sunbathing on a golf course, these reptiles are ubiquitous to our state. After hearing Jeff Klinkenberg’s lecture, and watching his accompanying video, you’ll agree that there can be no Florida without alligators. Hey, keep your hands inside the canoe.
