The Florida Python Challenge®
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 2021 Florida Python Challenge® was a huge success with participants removing more than 200 pythons! Read more about the results of the competition. Meet some of the winners of the 2021 Florida Python Challenge®.
