The Florida Panther: Our Landscape-Scale Effort to Prevent Extinction
Speaker: Wendy Mathews, The Nature Conservancy
The secretive Florida Panther once roamed the entire Southeastern United States.; Today, with an estimated population of between 120 to 230 animals, it survives in less than 5% of its historic range, concentrated in a small area in Southwest Florida. To help the species remain healthy and persist, TNC, in coordination with state and federal agency partners, began working over 25 years ago to secure and protect a corridor of vitally important lands to help with panther migration. Learn how TNC is still leading the way in the protection of the “Panther Corridor.”
