The Florida Python Challenge®

Governor Ron DeSantis

The Florida Everglades is an extraordinary ecosystem unlike any other in the world! It is home to a variety of rare and unique wildlife including a diversity of native birds, mammals, fish and reptiles. 

However, some reptiles, like the invasive Burmese python, do not belong in this ecosystem and pose a threat to native wildlife. The Florida Python Challenge® is an exciting conservation effort which helps protect the rare Everglades habitat and the animals that live there from these invasive, nonnative snakes.

The python removal competition begins at 8:00 a.m. on July 9, 2021 and ends at 5 p.m. on July 18, 2021. Register now!
