I have a place in central Florida, and would vote for expansion of the panther and its associated habitat, were that an option.

I hope their territory will be expanded and they greatly increase in numbers.

In my state, a lot of the wildlife is moving north because of global warming. Animals that used to be in our area are now up north and those animals in the northern region have relocated farther north.

Are they going to move those old humans out of the way to make room for the panthers?

Noted. One place they are looking into is around the Okefenokee wetlands. Lopez says" this area has the right type of prey and habitat. And while experts say this species is recovering, they also say there's still plenty of work ahead. We would still have to protect the habitat ". Thanks Cher.

I hope so wish they had more panthers here and wish they wouldn't keep shooting at them when they finally do show up.

What do you think will happen when you take away all their areas to roam?
