 In this Nov. 28, 2011 photo, wildlife biologist Rafael Crespo, with the University of Florida, measures a small crocodile captured in a cooling canal adjacent to the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, during a nighttime survey of the corocodiles in the area in Homestead, Fla. The crocodile monitoring program began in 1978, a year after employees stumbled upon a crocodile nest in the plantŐs cooling canal system. The initial goal was to ensure that the plant did no harm to the species but over the last three decades it has helped raise the number of crocodiles to more than 1,500 today. It is now classified as threatened, a small step toward the specieŐs survival. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)
