Florida Panther

National Wildlife Refuge - Florida

The Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge is located twenty miles east of Naples, in the upper segment of the Fakahatchee Strand of the Big Cypress Swamp. It is north of I-75 and west of SR 29. The Florida panther is the only cougar species found east of the Mississippi River. In all, less than 100 panthers use the area, with fewer than a dozen passing through the refuge each month. To protect the panther and other endangered inhabitants, general public use is only available at the southeast corner of the refuge, on designated hiking trails. All other areas can only be seen by way of limited tours.
