Florida Panther Protection Program


Florida Panther Protection Program…
…has been proposed by a broad coalition of leading conservation organizations and small and large farmers and ranchers in Eastern Collier County who are committed to setting the endangered Florida panther on a path to recovery. This collaborative approach suggests the protection of a significant, contiguous range of panther habitat - potentially as much as 2,500,000 acres in public and private lands. In addition, it calls for the establishment of the Paul J. Marinelli Panther Protection Fund, a source of private funds from well planned, sustainable real estate development in Eastern Collier County that could make significant funding available for conservation efforts over decades to come.


These podcasts feature Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist Mark Lotz and Barron Collier Companies Vice President of Governmental Affairs Tom Jones. They will talk about the Florida Panther, its past history and future prospects and the Florida Panther Protection Program.
