Stopped on our way home this morning to get a look in person, looks great! #pathofthepanther #keepflwild @carltonward

A meaningful encounter at Art Basel // The Path of the Panther, a significant message that should resonate with all Floridians. Continue reading below the story behind the mural and how you can support. . #Repost caption by artist @imdianagarcia ・・・ THE PANTHER Is powerful and protective, symbolizes courage, valor, power and leadership. Is a fierce guardian, symbol of the mother, the dark moon and the power of the night. She encourages us to understand the power within the shadows and to acknowledge these powers to help eliminate our fear of the dark and unknown. The endangered Florida Panther is the last puma surviving in the Eastern US. Their small population is currently isolated to the Everglades at the Southern tip of the state, but to survive they need access to more territory throughout Florida and beyond. This female Panther -the first to move north of the Everglades in nearly 50 years, is the HOPE for the recovery of the species and the all life that depends on her path. (More info: www.pathofthepanther.com) When we loose animal species, we loose their gifts and connection with the energy they represent, it in ourselves. I’m so touched on how the Panther made this mural happen in synergy, grateful to collaborate with the amazing photographer/activist @carltonward // gracias @chozen_retreat @ximenacho @metro1 @charliejim @_gina_moon_ for the wonderful wall and your help in making this happen // gracias @alex_ebert for believing in magic and for your support // gracias @imomarcantu por ser mi tech angel // and to ma AMAZING girl gang, Panther guardians, the hands that made this happen @torilinder @alexcia.panay @deborahdecorral @ktbryden @malia_byrtus @katiaguzmanp // 🙏🏻 @nachoarimany for the powerful activation🌈 If in Miami, stop by 166 NW 29th St, Wynwood- and check out the wall, the silver GUARDIANS and all the amazing art by @steeleism @atraformstudio @tylergoldflower @fenomena.studio @dinoreal @katiaguzmanp @rockbert38 #bewhatyoudream #ichoosemagic #pathofthepanther #keepflwild

While servicing a camera trap in the Babcock Ranch Preserve, with @leyoho the evening light grabbed our attention long enough to get a couple shots. The Preserve occupies nearly 70,000 acres of Southwest Florida. At the time of its purchase by the state in 2006 it was the largest acquisition of conservation land in Florida’s history. It is a critically important piece of the Florida Wildlife Corridor, which aims to permanently connect a statewide network of protected lands in support of wildlife. #floridawildlifecorridor #keepflwild #swfl #florida #conservation #conservationphotography #babcockranchpreserve #babcockranch #nature #naturephotography #protectedland #charlottecounty #pathofthepanther

#Repost @carltonward • • • The biggest benefit to chasing ghost orchids this summer has been spending a lot of time in the amazing flooded forests of the Fakahatchee Strand. I paddled into this pocket of watery wildness nearly weekly for the past three months to tend to camera traps pointed at ghost orchid blooms seeking to document the moths thought to pollinate the rare flowers. Thanks to @ktbryden for capturing this moment as we greeted the morning in a place that’s become a part of me over the past three years. And thanks to @warbonnetoutdoors for making the perfect jungle hammocks for this mission. With @torilinder. SUP by @yoloboard. Nimble paddle craft and bug proof hammocks open new possibilities for adventure in places with plenty of trees buy no dry land for miles. #swamp #chasingghosts #pathofthepanther @natgeo @insidenatgeo #Everglades #adventure #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild @fl_wildcorridor

This #GivingTuesday join us in protecting the Path of the Panther. By working with scientists and landowners to tell the Florida panther’s story, we are seeking common ground to balance the needs of a growing human population and the land protection needed to keep the Everglades connected to North America, saving a future for wild Florida. Because panthers need the same forests, wetlands, ranches and farms that provide clean water, air and food for people, protecting the path of the panther is ultimately about protecting ourselves. Contributions to #PathofthePanther will make an impact in the effort to #KeepFLWild. This year alone we have reached millions across the world. Whether you donate $5, $50 or $500 - Every bit helps. Thank you for your support.

@CarltonWard | A female Florida black bear sniffs the air while crossing a cypress strand in Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. These waters are part of the Fakahatchee Strand, which naturally drains the western Everglades toward Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge and the Gulf of Mexico. Four million acres of contiguous protected land in South Florida provide key habitat for wide-ranging species, including bears and panthers. Whether we protect enough of the Florida Wildlife Corridor to keep the Southern Everglades connected to the Northern Everglades will determine whether the Everglades watershed can be restored the endangered wildlife, such as the Florida panther, will have access to enough land to recover.

“To encounter the sacred is to be alive at the deepest center of human existence. Sacred places are the truest definitions of the earth; they stand for the earth immediately and forever; they are its flags and shields.” Feeling forever blessed and thankful to have our family’s land added by the US Department of the Interior to the Florida Conservation Land Easement, never to be built upon. It’s all we ever wanted for this extremely special, beautiful, & biodiverse land.

Florida cowboy heroes Chris Hopper and Elton Langford in the pine woods at Babcock Ranch. Elton is a 13th generation Florida rancher with heritage going back to Spanish rancheros near St. Augustine. He’s also a DeSoto County Commissioner who recently voted to prevent a ranch from being mined based on environmental and water quality concerns. Babcock Ranch State Preserve is where the first female panther was documented north of the Caloosahatchee River since 1973. #pathofthepanther #florida #ranch #heritage #floridawild #keepflwild

Team #pathofthepanther shared the wonders of the Greater Everglades with students from #natgeounivmiami as we explored panther habitat and a working cattle ranch. We’re trained to fear the swamp but after a few minutes in blackwater it’s easy to see there’s nothing to be afraid of.... Well aside from sticks, obviously. 🐊 . . . . . . #keepflwild #floridawild #everglades #education #florida #wilderness #wildernessculture #conservation #natgeo #nature #optoutside #theu

#Repost @carltonward (@get_repost) ・・・ This #nationalwildlifeday I’d like to share a recent photo of Florida panther — our state animal that shows us what we need to do to save wild Florida. This frame was captured on Babcock Ranch using a custom made camera trap. I’ve been working in this area for two years for my #pathofthepanther project with @NatGeo @myfwc @fl_wildcorridor and recently @nature_org. A male panther like this one has a home range of 200 square miles — and area so large that outside of Big Cypress National Preserve multiple properties are usually required to support a single panther. That makes panthers perfect ambassadors for protecting the statewide network of public and private lands that makeup #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. And if we don’t protect the Corridor, panthers will not have access to enough of their historic habitat to recover to sustainable numbers. #panther #floridawild #keepflwild #animals #natgeowild #sealegacy #carltonward

Repost: @carltonward Very inspired by the work Carlton Ward does for Florida.// It is an incredible feeling to look into the eyes of a bear at ground level in its habitat. This Florida black bear was one of the first I photographed while focusing on the research that ultimately inspired the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor campaign. I was following biologist Joe Guthrie (@joeguthrie8) on foot as he stalked towards this female bear with a dart rifle in a bay head forest on the Hendrie Ranch in Highlands County. The Highlands-Glades Bear Project was a collaboration between University of Kentucky and @ArchboldStation. Joe’s professor David Maehr, who was lost in a plane crash tracking a missing black bear with rancher Mason Smoak, often made the point that there would be no bears in that part of Florida without the proactive stewardship of ranchers. GPS tracking showed that bears traveled as far as 500 miles across a patchwork or ranches, groves and public preserves that keep the Northern Everglades connected for wide ranging wildlife. Through research, bears have shown us what we need to do to save the Corridor, and in that way are preparing the path of recovery for the Florida panther as it reclaims historic territory northwards out of the Everglades. #PathofthePanther @FL_WildCorridor #floridawild #keepflwild #bear #forest #conservation #florida #wildlife @myfwc @natgeo @insidenatgeo #pureflorida @pureflorida
