Felis concolor coryi
Florida Panther, the most endangered mammal in the world,
is on the brink of extinction. Today there are only
30 to 50 of these beautiful creatures remaining. The
reason: Homo sapiens are the guilty species that is
the cause of the Florida Pantherís demise. If the Florida
Panther is to survive and grow in numbers two things
must be done. We must immediately stop incroaching on
their habitat and become aware we must help them in
their biological repoduction because of their small
genetic pool left, or they will soon go extinct.
Florida Panther is a subspecies of cougar that once
roamed the entire southeastern part of the United States.
Over the last two centuries our reckless expansion (their
habitat loss) has been backing the Florida Panther further
and further into southern Florida. Today the last 30
to 50 survivers are found in a relatively small section
of southwestern Florida.
