FWF’s Sharing the Landscape project, being done in partnership with the fStop Foundation, gained national and international attention in November of 2020 when our backyard cameras captured a man saving his puppy from an alligator. This video elevates the importance of ‘sharing the landscape;’ humans must respect wildlife and, of course, always keep your dog on a leash and avoid lingering near the edge of retention ponds where alligators are known to occupy.
