(Top) Conservation activist and philanthropist “ALLIGATOR” RON BERGERON was honored during the 10th Anniversary Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation Banquet to benefit ocean conserva- tion. Bergeron was recognized for his ardent support in protect- ing the Everglades and our natural environment. The Horatio Alger Award recipient and Davie native's love of Florida wildlife and understanding of their need to be protected motivates him to budget half of his time to Everglades conservation.
