Our Mission

To inspire in our visitors a respect and understanding for the crocodile. The aim is to stimulate public awareness about crocodiles, alligators, caimans and gharials, and open people’s eyes to the incredible nature of crocodiles, and spark curiosity and awareness for the future.


We encourage people of all ages, nationalities, and walks of life to get involved and learn about these amazing animals. By dispelling the myth that crocodiles are vermin, or a dangerous nuisance, we can make the world a more compassionate place for crocodiles.

We pursue this mission by:

  • Increasing public understanding of crocodiles and their welfare
  • Enabling our visitors to experience a stimulating and enjoyable day out for the whole family
  • Ensuring animals are healthy and well kept in naturalistic habitat-like enclosures
  • Increasing understanding of the issues involved in conservation and the breeding of endangered species
  • Participating in co-ordinated breeding programmes and working closely with other zoos, wildlife parks and conservation bodies to maximise their conservation involvement
  • Playing a significant role nationally and internationally in crocodile research and conservation
  • Promoting care for the environment through education
  • Developing its role as a centre for scientific study and research
  • Providing an education programme for all ages and abilities
  • Planning and running outreach programs
  • Supporting crocodile conservation programmes in the wild
We pursue this mission by:  

The ultimate aim

The ultimate aim of Crocodiles of the World, and all those working for the conservation of crocodiles, is to see wild populations of all crocodilian species recover to unthreatened numbers and to promote well managed and sustainable use of resources in crocodile habitats.
