Florida Panther

Florida panther

Fearsome looking but no doubt beautiful, the Florida panther is a rare sight.  Although it's Florida's state animal, the panther is an endangered species with only around 100 left in the wild. The biggest challenge facing this cat? Habitat loss. In 2011, we completed an effort to protect Priority 1 habitat for the Florida panther. Learn about our efforts >>
