About alligator leather: American alligator (alligator mississippiensis) is one of the most precious jewels of the leather industry, and was once an endangered species. However, thanks to creative use and conservation programs and international trade regulation, it has completely recovered and is common in many areas of the American southeast. An investment in alligator leather is an investment in the environment. Alligators live in swamps, which are up to 50 times more effective in sequestering carbon and battling climate change than rainforests. But swamps are fragile and expensive to maintain. Typically an owner can only profit from their swampland by turning it into farmland or drilling it for oil - both of which are dreadful for the environment. However, by making raising alligators a lucrative business, owners have a financial incentive to maintain their land in its natural state. This not only protects the alligators, but all of the other flora and fauna that also thrive in swamps and which would otherwise disappear.
