Cat Tale: The Wild, Weird Battle to Save the Florida Panther
February 24, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join award-winning author Craig Pittman for the wild yet hopeful story of how the panther survived. Not long ago, a lot of people thought the Florida panther was extinct. They were very nearly right. That the panther still exists at all is a miracle-the result of a desperate experiment that led to the most remarkable comeback in the history of the Endangered Species Act. The story of what happened features a variety of odd characters, a twisty plot, and a rare hopeful ending for Florida’s state animal.
This program is a partnership between the Florida Humanities and the Marco Island Historical Society. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
