The Florida Panther Project, Inc. is a non-profit Florida corporation. The goal of the project is to, 1. assist in the recovery of the Florida panther in the wild by purchasing and setting aside natural habitat where the panther can survive, and 2. present educational talks and exhibits to the public. All funding is through voluntary contributions.
 
The Florida panther is currently on the Federally-protected Endangered Species list. Many estimates suggest that there are between 100-150 wild panthers in the entire state. These are the last remaining documented cougars in the eastern United States.
