Taken from http://www.fws.gov/wheeler/

Although seldom seen, American alligators do inhabit the Refuge. In the 1970ís, the alligator population had been reduced drastically, so 50 alligators were released here in an effort to help restore the species which at that time was federally listed as threatened. An estimated 40-50 alligators currently inhabit Wheeler NWR and at least one active nest was located during the summer of 2001
