Florida Panthers and Wildlife Corridors

02:00 pm-03:00 pm Bailey Homestead

Florida panthers are the rarest mammals in North America – and their future depends on wildlife corridors.  While not found on Sanibel, they play an important role in maintaining the ecosystems of Southwest Florida. The last few years have seen record-breaking panther deaths, but there is hope in protecting their habitat and allowing the elusive cat to spread north into its historic habitat. Prior to joining us, SCCF Public Outreach Coordinator Alexis Horn ran the Sierra Club’s Florida Panther program. Join her to learn about what makes Florida panthers unique and why they are so vital to our environment.
