Expand Florida Panther habitat, stop development, create corridors diverting panthers away from our roads, provide more economic funding for recovery efforts.

The Florida Panther (Puma Concolor Coryi), was listed as an endangered species 41 years ago (March 11, 1967), but this species is still in peril because critical habitat has never been established; remediation for this is urgently needed. The 2012-2013 Annual Report on the Research and Management of Florida Panthers (Revised in September 11, 2013) that the estimated population in the wild is within the range of 100-160 individuals.

Between January and April 2014, 10 Florida Panthers have  already died. This is an extremely urgent action to save this species. Every death is a great loss for the Florida Panther's species survival.
