Be alert: Local alligator sighting

Lynn University’s Department of Campus Safety recently was informed that an alligator was spotted at one of our neighboring communities. Alligators are native to our South Florida region and are a protected species.

In the rare event that any member of our Lynn community sees an alligator on campus:

  • Remain calm. Leave the area immediately, and encourage others to stay away, too.
  • Call Campus Safety immediately: +1 561-237-7226.
  • Not provoke or feed it. Alligators can be very aggressive, especially when mating or protecting nests. Keep at least 30 feet between you and an alligator at all times. If an alligator hisses at you, run away immediately.

Remember: alligators are wild, and their behavior is unpredictable. If you see one, stay away from it and call Campus Safety.

For more information about alligators, visit the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
