ACES pleas for assistance today. While we have said that there needs to be an ACES on the island, we have been putting it on the back burner because of finances. Last nights rescue warrants the immediate need of a crocodile sanctuary here on the island. This croc's jaw was broken some time ago and has healed in the manner you see here. The 6 ft reptile was living under a resident's home. ACES rescued it last night. This croc need to be in captivity so that larger crocs do not kill it. It is slightly under weight but other wise healthy. The jaw is functioning and there is no signs of infection. This is yet another croc that had lost it's fear of humans do to either direct or indirect feeding.

ANYONE interested in a permanent educational Crocodile Sanctuary to be built on their land PLEASE CALL Cherie at 666-3871 or Vince at 631-6366. ACES will have fundraisers for construction costs, apply for grants, design the facility, educate staff, and care for the crocodiles. This facility is needed immediately for three reasons: 1. To house crocs, as this one, that are injured, ill, or problematic; 2. As a facility to treat crocs that can be rehabilitated and re-released; 3. As a holding area for large problematic crocs that will eventually be re-located to the new ACES in Ladyville.

Additionally, it would hold croc's that are confiscated until they can be re-released. And finally, it would be and educational place where people can come learn about crocodiles and croc conservation for self-sustainability. You can also help by donating funds for the establishment of an ACES here on the island at

Thank you for your support! Cherie & Vince
