There are Florida panthers in the Everglades, but did you know fewer than 100 wild panthers live in all of south Florida today? That number is up from about 20 in the 1970s, but the species is still endangered.
If you’d like to learn more about Florida panthers, these pages are a great start:
- The Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge (visited by about 8,000 people per year)
- The National Park Service’s Florida Panther Profile
- National Wildlife Foundation’s “Cat on a Collision Course” article
Do you have friends that care about saving the panther, too? Let them know!
