Bear & Panther recovery

The FWC commissioners have voted to remove the Florida Black Bear off the "threatened list". This is Good News for Bears, since the 70s their number having increased from around
300 - 3000.

Pity our panther recovery effort is not as impressive. Since the 70s their population has only increased from approximately 30 - 160.

COUGAR REWILDING NEW E-Newsletter
We appreciate your support by your dues and donations as we work to re-establish cougars in their former range and maintain healthy populations in source areas in the central United States. 

Great articles updating us on current cougar issues, giving us a very clear view that cougars are precariously balanced on a limb right now - will we send them crashing to the ground, or will we allow them to jump into the future to re-colonize their native lands?

Injured Kitten passed away


Injured Kit Dies

Very sad that this kit did not make it. But they tried their best to save him. You just never know, his recovery was guarded at best due to his injuries. At least he was cared for.
