Davao Crocodile Park
Davao Crocodile Park was originally started by Philip Dizon, due to his fascination with Philippine saltwater and freshwater crocodiles. He did not think of it as a possibly lucrative business until he learned that crocodiles are raised in United States not just for public viewing but for production of leather as well.
In November 1995, the government gave him the accreditation and permit to operate the 1st Davao Crocodile Park. 10 years later, on August 18, 2005, the world-class Davao Crocodile Park was opened with the help of consultant Dr. Gilbert Buenviaje.
The Davao Crocodile Park Inc. is currently owned and operated by a group of businessmen headed by Mr. Sonny Dizon, a resident of Davao City.
