REPCO – Reptiles
REPCO Wildlife is a private conservation facility whose mission is to help as many species as we can, protect as many ecosystems as possible, and inspire the next generation of children to become wildlife warriors and active stewards of our Earth. We also train US Fish and Wildlife Service, law enforcement, and others on how to handle venomous snakes and crocodilians during drug raids and illegal animal confiscations. We also take in surrenders and confiscated animals. One of our favorite projects is filming wildlife documentaries and shows for YouTube. Our involvement with media and travel provide an added unique style and comprehension to our wildlife educational programs. Click here for the link to our YouTube channel. We also do captive breeding for the Invisible Ark and we are involved in various field work projects. On occasion, we are called out to provide humane snake relocation.

REPCO staff has worked with a wide range of animals, including nurse sharks, spitting cobras, farm animals, harbor seals, raccoons, birds of prey, and many, many more! REPCO currently works with around a hundred different species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, aquatics, and insects on site. Our workers and volunteers are well versed in animal care, including training through the Tortoise Trust Institute in the United Kingdom, receiving certification from the Wildlife Campus in South Africa, and trained in Avian Wildlife Health through the New Zealand Department of Conservation as well as former aquarium, zoo and wildlife rehabilitation workers here in the United States. Some of our staff has owned and shown horses and rabbits and has a menagerie of pets at home. We love our animals!
