About Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge


The Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1989 to protect the Florida panther and its habitat. Florida panthers den, hunt and roam throughout the refuge and adjacent lands. The 26,400 acre refuge is located within the core of panther distribution in the heart of the Big Cypress Basin in southwest Florida. Besides the panther, 24 other species of mammals, birds and reptiles found in and around the refuge are state or federally listed as threatened, endangered or of special concern. Many of the state's threatened and endangered native orchids can also be found on the refuge.
