Gatorland Introduces "Savannah Swamp Girl" As New Animal Education Ambassador

ORLANDO, Florida (Oct. 11, 2016)  –  Gatorland®, the "Alligator Capital of the World," has a new wild feature and it's not an animal.  Radio Personality Savannah Boan, widely known as "Savannah Swamp Girl" on 104.1 FM's Monsters of the Morning program and iHeartRadio, is the park's newest addition.  As Animal Education Ambassador, she will be a liaison between the animals and the public, working primarily on Gatorland’s worldwide social media presence.  

Over ten years in radio, four years in the Marine Corp and a special passion for alligators and crocodiles, Savannah is an advocate for Florida wildlife and conservation with a large following of listeners, fans and friends the world over.  She has a pet crocodile monitor named Butters, is a contributing writer for the U.K.'s Digitilian online reptile magazine, and has worked with crocodiles and reptiles from Cuba to Australia.  Savannah also worked at The Reptile Zoo in Orange County, Calif. and while there, appeared on The Tonight Show and Good Day L.A. with a world-record 24-foot reticulated python and other gigantic reptiles.

"We are very excited to have Savannah join our Gatorland family.  She has a deep passion and incredible enthusiasm for alligators, crocodiles, reptiles and all our animals," said Mark McHugh, president and CEO of Gatorland.  "She's all about Florida wildlife, and so are we."

            Gatorland is a 100-acre theme park combining Old Florida charm with exciting experiences, exhibits and entertainment.  The park originally opened as a roadside attraction in 1949.  Today, it provides affordably-priced family fun featuring thousands of alligators and crocodiles, breeding marsh with observation tower, free flight aviary, nature walk, petting zoo, educational wildlife programs, award-winning gift shop, Florida's best train ride, Gator Gully Splash Park, on site restaurant, and one of a kind shows including Gator Wrestlin', Gator Jumparoo, and Up-close Encounters.  Another not to be missed feature is the Screamin' Gator Zipline with over 1,200 feet of high flying thrills, five intense zip lines and a massive 150-foot suspension bridge.  For more Gatorland information, visit us online at www.gatorland.com or call 800-393-JAWS.  Find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/gatorland and on Twitter @gatorland.com.

1/12 Gatorland

A couple of weeks ago, Eric from Orlando Fun Tickets sent me an email asking if I wanted to join him at Gatorland .  I'd never been, and knew very little about it (besides the fact that they had alligators and had recently had a fire).  I had NO idea what to expect.   All in all, I thought it was a wonderful place to visit!   I love the wildlife - it's not just alligators.   I chose not to post one photo which showed a gator after he had eaten something (I didn't see the kill - but as in nature, you never know what is going to happen).  I also wanted to thank John Frost over at The Disney Blog for mentioning this article (and my Cinderella Castle Stay photo article!)
