Event Details

Florida Panther


The Panther Tale
Facilitator: Marc Criffield, Panther Biologist, FFWCC 

A CREW Strolling Science Seminar

Florida panthers are where it’s at!  Come and learn from a real, out-in-the-field panther biologist. Marc will teach you what a panther is, why kittens have a tough life, how to catch a panther, and how much space a panther really needs.  

Panthers are one of the most recognizable and endangered species in Florida as well as the official state animal, and only the citizens of Florida can save them!

Participants will gain the perspective that CREW provides a habitat island in a sea of development and intensive land use which is critically important to help maintain the Florida panther in its current range and sustain the species into the foreseeable future.

 

What to wear/bring: Wear comfortable outdoor walking clothes and closed-toed shoes. Bring water to drink, sunscreen, hat, (camera optional).

Organizer

CREW Land & Water Trust

The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation.  CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
