ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Georgia wildlife officials are proposing a management plan for the state's alligator population.
Tuesday night in Bainbridge state officials will take recommendations from the public, as they put together the long term conservation program to protect and control Georgia's alligators.
Wildlife officials estimate the state's alligator population at about 250,000 reptiles, and growing.
State officials say this will be the first comprehensive plan for alligators, and will use the hunting season to regulate their population.
Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Biologist Brandon Rutledge said "Hunting is an important part of managing the alligator population. And what we would like to do with this statewide alligator management plan is kind of stabilize the number of alligators we have now."
Last year Georgia increased the number of alligator hunting licenses to 850, with hunters from all 50 states applying. If you would like to comment on the proposed alligator program, the public information meeting will be held at Bainbridge College Tuesday night at 7 O-clock.
