Landscape Conservation in Florida is important for the future conservation and recovery of large ranging species like Florida Panthers. Conserving large areas requires willing partners from various agencies, organizations and private landowners.

The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Act, Public Law 109-294, authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to provide technical and financial assistance to private landowners to improve fish and wildlife habitats through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

Approximately 25% of the primary panther habitat is on privately owned lands. Therefore, it is imperative to facilitate private landowner-centered efforts that promote efficient and innovative ways to Improve habitat for Federal Trust Species; including the Florida Panther.

In past years, the Partners for Fish and Wildlife program has complemented activities on the National Wildlife Refuge, by working with landowners adjacent to the refuge and in primary panther habitat to control invasive plant infestations.

Beyond invasive plant management, what are your ideas for working with willing land owners to protect and enhance Florida Panther habitats?
