Florida panthers once prowled and flourished in America's
southeastern woodlands and swamps, but today fewer than 160 of these majestic
cats remain in a tiny remnant of their historic range. And that habitat is
shrinking every day – gobbled up by subdivisions and commercial development.
We're in a race against time.
As panther habitat becomes more and more fragmented, it will be increasingly
difficult for these creatures to stay out of harm's way.
Please ask Secretary
Jewell and Director Ashe to make protecting and recovering critically
endangered Florida panthers a top priority!
