Path of the Panther

The Last Big Cat

What is “Path of the Panther”?

For select projects of conservation artists and communicators, the Florida Wildlife Corridor serves as a Fiscal Agent by extending its non-profit status. This program is designed to assist people who have a project in mind and can benefit from our non-profit status to fundraise for their project. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, and can serve as a pass-through agent for qualified projects in return for a five percent administration fee.

In this way, the Florida Wildlife Corridor provides a fundraising structure and completes certain administrative tasks. Along with the fiscal relationship, we also offer other services. Once under the umbrella of the Florida Wildlife Corridor’s community of artists and professional communicators, we provide mentorship, website and newsletter publicity, help with PR and marketing efforts, and more depending upon individual needs.

Through serving as a fiscal agent, we empower artists and storytellers to educate audiences about the experience of a place in time, and to share their messages about community. Whether their method is the written word, photography, painting, drawing, or some other creative medium, the work helps the viewer to respond to the message at hand. Read about our current partners and how their work informs and engages.

The Florida Panther

An Icon of Wild Florida

The Florida panther — the last big cat surviving in the eastern United States and the state animal of Florida — is an icon of wild Florida. Its survival depends on the protection of a network of statewide public and private lands, known as the Florida Wildlife Corridor. As Florida’s human population continues to grow and suburban sprawl is projected to consume five million acres of wildlife habitat by 2070, it’s never been more important to protect the land that the Florida panther needs to survive.
