Alligator Spotlight Surveys – Monday and Tuesday, July 24-25

Posted In Community

If you see vehicles shining lights into ponds around the island over the next two nights, don’t be alarmed! On Monday, July 24 and Tuesday, July 25 from 9 p.m. – 12 a.m., Town of Kiawah Island and KICA biologists will be performing alligator spotlight surveys. Members may notice town or KICA vehicles behind their homes shining spotlights into the ponds during these hours. During these surveys, biologists shine spotlights into Kiawah ponds. The light reflects off of alligators’ eyes, giving the biologists a count of the approximate number of alligators in each pond.
