Today's daily Everglades painting, Night Scene will remind you of the active time of the Florida Panther, who most often travel and feed at dusk and dawn. Next week is National Panther Week, and a number of panther protection organizations will be offering a variety of events so that you can learn more about this elusive animal.

A few years ago Florida panthers were at such low numbers that the danger of extinction was grave. After much discussion and debate, eight Texas cougars, a closely related subspecies, were introduced into the wilds of Florida in the hopes of saving the species. Results to date are encouraging. Watch this video from Big Cat Rescue to introduce you to the beauty and grace of this large cat.

Start your week on Saturday at the Marco Island Community Conservation Celebration. This event will include lots of activities for yourself and your children. Learn more about the unique environment in which we live. Watch this video to introduce you to the grace and beauty of this large cat. You might also like to attend the Kick-off event at the Naples Zoo.

There's something for everyone. Hikes, talks, and viewings are all available. These events fill up early, so if you're interested, act fast. My two top choices are already full! If you'd like, you can join one of the protection organizations and get involved.
