The Florida Panther

Posted By Stephanie Delgado, Thursday, May 22, 2008
The Florida Panther has been an endangered species since 1967, with only about 70 panthers left in Florida. One if the main threats to the panther's survival is the depletion of its habitat. Much of the habitat has been lost due to agricultural and residential development and a significant amount of deforestation. This has also caused the death of other animals, many of which include the panther's prey. Also, the Florida panther has become geographically isolated from other species of lions, thus causing them to inbreed. Inbreeding has lead to a homogeneity within the species and has caused poor health and diseases in the animals. If these remaining panthers are not properly cared for, conservation of the Florida Panther species will prove to be impossible.
