If we weren't told that there was a dry season, we might not understand why the holes are necessary. Given the highlighted portion, we understand that water levels can decrease seasonally, and this helps explains why the alligator holes are so important.


I have different view point than you.

If you see argument again, we already know that alligator population is decreasing because of hunting.
So in absence of alligators, less holes will be dug
and hence fish species WILL NOT be able to hatch in absence of holes and water.

We DO NOT need timing of when the holes are filled with water for fish species to hatch as mentioned by noun modifier
- During Parland’s dry season.

Is my reasoning valid?

Yes, we know that the alligator population (and hence the holes) are decreasing.

Again, I think the highlighted phrase simply provides some context. Picture a body of water whose water is at its highest point. Now, as the water level goes down during the dry season, the fish might have a problem finding a place for the eggs. Luckily, pools of water remain in those alligator holes, providing a safe place for the eggs. Yes, the holes are there regardless of the season, but if the water levels never decreased, the holes might not be needed.
