Yes, Florida’s wild panther population is increasing. 43 years ago the wild panther was placed on the endangered species list and never found a secure home. In 1973 there were as few as 20 wild panthers left and in the 80’s the few remaining wild panthers showed genetically-related health problems due to inbreeding. Since, thanks to the eight wild female panthers introduced from Texas, the population of wild panthers in Florida is a small, but growing population of 50-100 panthers. Today those panthers have a protected area of 3,458 square miles referred to as the Primary Zone to live and grow.
