What Was At Stake
The 120 to 230 Florida panthers left in the world are hanging on by a thread as they face consistent habitat destruction and lack healthy amounts of genetic diversity. And due to unchecked suburban sprawl pushing more cars onto more roads in panther habitat, a panther is killed by motorists once every three weeks. Despite this, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service — the agency charged with protecting endangered wildlife — is taking payments from landowners who are seeking permits to build massive developments and mines in habitat critical to the panther’s continued survival.
