About alligator leather: American alligator (alligator mississippiensis) is one of the most precious jewels of the leather industry, and was once an endangered species. However, thanks to creative use and conservation programs, it has completely recovered and is now common in many areas of the Southern U.S.
By purchasing alligator you're investing in the environment. Alligators live in wetlands, which are up to 50 times more effective in battling climate change than rainforests. But they're fragile and expensive to maintain. Typically an owner can only profit from their wetland by turning it into farmland or drilling it for oil - both of which are dreadful for the environment. However, by making raising alligators a profitable business, owners have a financial incentive to maintain their land in its natural state. This not only protects the alligators, but all of the other flora and fauna that also thrive in these wetlands and which would otherwise disappear.
