For the third consecutive year, Wild Florida visitors have generously contributed $4,000 during Gator Week to support the Wild Florida Cares Scholarship Fund. This year’s event, held from May 27 through June 1, 2024, attracted wildlife enthusiasts, tourists, and locals to celebrate Florida’s iconic reptile, the American alligator.

To encourage donations, guests were granted free entry to the Gator Park with contributions to the Wild Florida Cares Scholarship Fund. The week-long celebration featured a range of educational and entertaining activities, including live alligator demonstrations, interactive shows, and airboat rides through the headwaters of the Florida Everglades. Proceeds from Gator Week support the Wild Florida Cares Scholarship Fund, which assists Osceola County high school seniors who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership qualities, and a commitment to conservation.

“We’re overwhelmed by the support and success of this year’s Gator Week,” said PJ Brown, Director of Sales at Wild Florida. “Our team is grateful for the opportunity to invest in the next generation through the Wild Florida Cares Scholarship and to help high school seniors achieve their educational aspirations.”

The Wild Florida Cares Scholarship Fund is a part of Wild Florida Cares, a nonprofit organization launched by Wild Florida earlier this year. With a mission to enrich local communities and protect the diverse wildlife that represents Florida’s natural beauty, Wild Florida Cares has significantly contributed to both conservation efforts and scholarship programs, reflecting its dedication to making a meaningful impact.
