(Save The Panther 5k 1/9/16, Save The Tiger 5k 5/14/16, Save The Jaguar 5k 9/3/16)
Save The Panther 5k is January 9, 2016
Florida's state animal is the Florida panther!
In 1970 it was estimated that there were only 20 Florida panthers left in the wild. By 1995 that number had increased to approximately 50. Now it's estimated that there are between 100 and 160 Florida panthers wild in our state. The Palm Beach Zoo is working to help protect this endangered, iconic species. Everyday we educate Zoo guests about the importance of the Florida panther to our ecosystem and what you can do to help save them. Here's one fun thing you can do...run in the Save The Panther 5k. And please visit the Palm Beach Zoo to learn more about the Florida panther!
