Details

The panther is the state animal of Florida, the last big cat surviving east of the Mississippi River, and an emblem of the Endangered Species Act. A subspecies of the puma, the panther was driven to extinction throughout its range in the eastern United States except for a small remnant population that persisted in Florida’s Everglades. Panther numbers had dwindled to fewer than 20 individuals by the 1980s, but heroic conservation efforts have helped panthers come back to nearly 200 today. The biggest obstacle to the panther’s continued recovery is access to enough of its historic territory throughout Florida and adjoining states.

Rising north out of the Everglades, the tale of the Florida panther has grown from the unlikely survival of a rare cat to a story of hope for all wild Florida. The panther is now a symbol of a call to action to recognize and protect the Florida Wildlife Corridor – a network of public and private land that connects the panther’s current range in south Florida to suitable habitats throughout Florida and beyond. This photo presentation with embedded videos will tell the story of the Florida panther and how we can reconnect wild places across the Earth for the benefit of people and wildlife.
