PREDATOR OF THE SUNSHINE STATE – The Florida panther is an extremely endangered subspecies of the Puma concolor, which is commonly known by many names, including cougar, mountain lion, and puma. These cats are very territorial animals and require lots of space to hunt. Thus, conserving their habitat of cypress swamp and pineland is key to their survival.
PLIGHT OF THE PANTHER – The Florida panther faces many threats, including alligators, pesticides, and automobiles, but the biggest issues facing these animals are habitat loss and a lack of genetic diversity. It is the only remaining Puma concolor subspecies left in the eastern United States. The Florida panther is only found in southern Florida and its population may number just 160 animals.
