Florida Panther Symposium - March 21st


Sierra Club Florida, along with the Center for Biological Diversity, are proud to announce the first ever Florida Panther Symposium.


Florida panthers are no match for loss, fragmentation and degradation of their habitat. If these iconic and graceful predators are to survive, they need protected habitat and a clear plan for recovery.

Join the the Sierra Club on Friday, March 21st, hosted by the University of Florida's Levin College of Law Conservation Clinic and GreenLaw. It's free and open to the public.

Learn about efforts to protect and expand Florida panthers' range. The event will feature presentations from noted scientists and wildlife biologists in the morning, followed by complimentary lunch and a keynote speaker at noon. Come meet the Club's panther campaign organizer, Alexis Meyer. There will also be a field trip to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, March 22nd.
