Please tell FWS "I strongly support landscape scale habitat conservation planning efforts to provide vital linkages through private lands to public conservation lands in the region." This will help save our panther for future generations.
The Florida panther, with its long-tailed and pale brown fur, is a symbol of wild Florida. This cat once roamed across the entire southeastern United States, but human population growth has, and continues to, destroy, degrade, and fragment their habitat. Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) estimates there may be as few as 120-230 adult panthers left in South Florida.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is presently reviewing the status of our iconic Florida Panther.
