Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge

(Puma concolor coryi)

As its name suggests, the Florida Panther Refuge was established to protect the critically endangered Florida panther, a local subspecies of mountain lion. It is thought that there are fewer than 50 of these animals remaining. Recent introductions of a close cousin, the Texas panther, are already thought to be successful in enhancing the gene pool and improving the Florida panther’s chances of survival. Other species found in this forested wetland of cypress trees and subtropical hardwoods include black bears, bobcats, alligators, and otters. Endangered wood storks are also found here, and the area is home to the largest concentration and greatest density of native orchids on the continent.
