On Friday, May 17 at 6 PM the Friday Night Naturalist topic will be “Alligators: Their Health and Our Environment” presented by Russell Lowers, a wildlife biologist with InoMedic Health Applications at Kennedy Space Center. Lowers has been studying the alligator population there since 2006, as KSC is home to a significant amount of the long-lived species.

By looking at the habits, reproduction and overall health of the alligator, the study results provide insight into environmental conditions. Lowers will present information on the trends that have been documented, including the impact of climate change on alligator hatchlings since their sex is determined by temperature.
