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 2022 Florida Python Challenge® has concluded. Thanks to all the participants and sponsors who have supported this effort! Learn how many invasive Burmese pythons were removed as well as who walked away with the $10,000 Ultimate Grand Prize.
