Sustainable Use Program
In 1986, the Louisiana Alligator Ranching Program of Protection was born. 1985 studies by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries established the Louisiana Alligator wild population at 500,000 alligators. Their plan was to allow Ranchers to harvest alligator eggs from the marshes of Louisiana. In addition, the Rancher would return 17% of all alligators hatched back to the marsh at a size of 4 feet.
Insta-Gator Ranch entered this amazing program in 1989. Insta-Gator Ranch’s 1st step was to begin harvesting eggs from the marshes of Louisiana. Since then, we have been harvesting, hatching, returning alligators and hiring the best artisans to make our products.
This program has resulted in the population of alligators dramatically increasing over the past 30 plus years. As a result, the alligator return rate has been reduced from 17%, to 14%, then 12% and now 10%. At the time of each reduction in return rate the wild population increased from 500,000 to 1.5 million, then 2.5 million and today over 3 million.
Today, the best protected animal on earth is likely the American Alligator. This amazing Sustainable Use Program and the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Alligator Department is nearly 100% funded through the sale of ranch raised alligator products. Through your purchase of our products, the wild alligator population will continue to flourish and remain possibly the best managed wild species on earth.
