Pancho, the American crocodile "who" died on August 29th, 2014 after being trapped at his home (Gables by the Sea) and buried in an undisclosed location will finally receive a proper public wake and burial. 

On the three month anniversary of Pancho's death, FIU College of Architecture + The Arts artist-in-residence Xavier Cortada invites you to join him at Biscayne Nature Center to a "celebration of life" for the deceased crocodile: The evening will include the unveiling of Pancho's portrait, a eulogy, offerings made by biology graduate students (including research about and/or suggestions on how best to coexist with nature) and a proper burial at the water's edge.  To RSVP please visit our Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/687053578039644/).

Pacho is survived by a host of littoral creatures that struggle to survive on Biscayne Bay.

In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the ecology of the bay.

Pancho's Wake will coincide with the closing reception for Cortada's "Littoral Creatures," aimed at raising awareness and generating decoctions (see minute 3:30 on video below) to protect BiscayneBay and its sea grasses. See http://cortada.com/2014/LittoralCreatures/
