Эти земли имеют решающее значение для коридора дикой природы Флориды и таких разнообразных видов, как пантера Флориды. Снято во время моего рассказывающего проекта #PathofthePanther с @insidenatgeo.

Thank you to the Florida Panthers Foundation for unveiling a massive #PathofthePanther mural in their home arena last night to raise awareness for the endangered Florida panther as ambassador to save the Florida Wildlife Corridor and #KeepFLWild. Last night was Panther Conservation Night at the @thebbtcenter. The main photo in the mural is of a male panther from one of my camera traps at Babcock Ranch. The mural’s messaging focuses on the importance of for panther territory for conserving Florida’s nature and culture, from black bears to cowboys and the Everglades water we drink. The mural is 14 feet tall! I can’t wait to see it in person! Thank you @torilinder for representing our cause for the media and @bobbyneptune for capturing these photos! @flapanthers @fl_wildcorridor @insidenatgeo

In conjunction with Panther Conservation night, we’re excited to showcase the newest addition to @thebbtcenter - a #PathOfThePanther mural dedicated to informing our fans of one of the four pillars of the #FlaPanthers⁠ ⁠ Foundation.

In honor of Florida Panthers Conservation night (where our keepers will be representing) with @carltonward and @florida_panthersnhl tonight here’s the wonderful #repost piece by @carltonward ・・・
This week I had the privilege of photographing Sassy, an almost 4-year old Florida panther who lives at the Palm Beach Zoo. Her mother was killed by a car near Naples in 2014 and Sassy was the only of three kittens to survive. Biologists from @myfwc took her to @naples_zoo for immediate care in their animal hospital and she was later moved to the @palmbeachzoo for her permanent home where hundreds of thousands of visitors have a chance to see her each year. In addition to caring for injured and abandoned panthers, and giving homes to panthers that can’t be released to the wild, zoos serve an important role in educating the public about panthers and their conservation needs. Just a few minutes looking at this beautiful creature and anyone is going to fall in love. I’ve been chasing panthers in the wild with camera traps for 3 years and have seen two panthers in the wild with my own eyes. So I was mesmerized by the opportunity to observe Sassy in her large enclosure. Her grace, power and stealth was awe inspiring. At one point she jumped 10 feet down from a tree and landed on the ground right in front of me under full control without making a sound! Go see her yourself! Here a few photos from by visit with Sassy, all shot through the steel mesh of her habitat. Which is your favorite? Thanks @sonyalpha for loaning me a 400 2.8 lens that allowed me to produce wonderfully sharp photos with the foreground and background out of focus, and all handheld because the lens is so lightweight. Thanks to the @panthers_florida foundation, Fox Sports Miami and Zoo President Margo McKnight for working with me to share the #pathofthepanther story!

Bobcats sure love to venture in front of our remote cameras. They share the territory with Florida Panthers and continue to thrive thanks to the protected land. #PanthersProtect. What other animals do you expect to see in Florida Panther territory? 🌿

Bobcats are not endangered like the Florida Panther and they're more likely to be seen by humans. Sometimes show up in suburban backyards! These #BigCats may look cute, but remember they are a wild animal. #PanthersProtect 📸 by: Robert Wilson

This week our focus is on #bobcats! Bobcats are another wild cat species commonly found in Florida. They're frequent visitors to the locations where our cameras are stationed. #PanthersProtect

The #SnowyEgret is a majestic bird full of beauty and grace. You can find these birds in areas of Southwest Florida where Florida Panthers are also found. They are one of many birds that #PanthersProtect. Share one of your favorite Florida bird encounters in the comments below. 🐤 📸 by: David Bates

Panther Weekly!
If you visit Florida in the near future, you may have a chance to see one of the rarest wild cats on earth. Or, you may just find a shopping mall.

The future of this endangered cat was put in peril when a new land development, planned on 40,000 acres on Collier County, was proposed by Eastern Collier Property Owners, LLC to the county commission.

As the Tampa Bay Times reports, panthers have used this privately owned land, located between the Big Cypress National Preserve and the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge to the south and the Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest and Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary to the north, to hunt deer and hogs. The planned development will occupy 20,000 acres of this panther habitat.

This is bad news for the panther, which requires a large area to thrive. Only about 200 of these big cats remain alive in the wild. If the development succeeds, that number will likely plummet.

The #BurrowingOwl is one of Florida's smallest owls. These little guys spend a majority of their time on the ground to easily blend in with the brown foliage common in Florida. They also share territory with Florida Panthers and benefit from panther habitat #conservation. #PanthersProtect. 📸 by: Robert Wilson

Photo by @CarltonWard | A leopard stalks through the rainforest in the central African country of Gabon. This photo was captured by a camera trap consisting of a 35mm SLR film camera in a waterproof box connected to three flashes in waterproof tubes. The big cat triggered an invisible infrared trip wire set across the trail, essentially taking its own picture as I was camped several miles away. This was one of the first successful camera trap photos of my career, from 2002, when I was part of a series of biodiversity expeditions with the Smithsonian Institution. The photo was recorded on 100 ISO slide film, and nearly three months passed before I got it processed back in the U.S. When the image came into focus on my light table, I literally bounced on my bed in excitement that the homemade camera trap had worked and made possible a photo I could have never created while holding the camera in my hands. I had no idea that 15 years later I would be leading the #PathofthePanther project with @InsideNagGeo using digital camera traps to capture otherwise impossible photos of endangered panthers in the swamps and forests of my native Florida. Thankfully, digital cameras are not limited to 36 exposures or delays in processing. But looking at the images in a camera that has been on a trail for a month is still like opening a present. #leopard #Gabon #cameratrap

Sandhill cranes are one of the many species of birds that benefit from Florida Panther protection. Our remote cameras capture these cranes walking in Florida Panther territory showing the importance of protecting the panther habitat. 🌿 #PanthersProtect.

You're crazy...too emotional...too over the top...too WILD. Well the truth is, you are a woman and you can't be tamed. You have the heart of a black bear, curious and kind. You're tough like a gator, with the thickest skin. And you're STRONG like a panther. Facing every obstacle that stands in your path.

Happy #internationalwomensday to all the fierce females of planet Earth.
