Living in Florida means living with alligators. The state is very proactive in their management strategies to control alligator populations.
Alligator hunting permits cost $271.50 for Florida residents and for nonresidents the cost is $1,025.50. This permits the hunter to take two gators.
The Florida Wildlife Commission offers some great advice on living with alligators on their website MyFWC.com/gators.
Many people report all alligators they see as a nuisance, however they are not considered such unless they are at least four feet in length and pose a threat to people, pets or property.
If you need alligator assistance on Amelia Island, or to report a nuisance alligator, call 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286).
