We know that so many people were affected by Hurricane Florence in Brunswick County, as well as other areas in NC. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to everyone who is dealing with the aftermath of this historic storm. We have received several e-mails from people asking us about the affect the floods may have had
on our alligator population. One thing we know for sure is that alligators are survivors. They instinctually know what to do and when to do it. With all of the rain and flooding, many alligator habitats have overflowed. This poses no threat to the alligators. I suspect they love it, because the size of their “house” just expanded by leaps and bounds. Even so, I was still concerned about them, especially my favorite alligator (Beau). We learned that the road by his habitat lost a 250 foot section. The pond he calls home breached the road and washed out the causeway. Yesterday we were thrilled to see a photo of
Beau swimming between the broken halves of the road. Thank you to the staff of Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson for keeping us up-to-date on our favorite place in Brunswick County!
