Wildlife Watchdogs regularly rescues crocodiles from villages. Because they are losing their habitat, they look for food in urbanized areas. After a medical check we bring the animals to a place where they can live without being a danger to humans.
Crocodiles and alligators are threatened because people catch them for their skin, among other things. Bags, shoes and belts are made from this. Body parts are processed in traditional Eastern medicines. The bones are crushed and added to fertilizer and animal feed. Their meat and eggs are cooked and eaten, while their sexual organs, musk and urine are processed into perfume.
