Only 180 Left: Act Now to Save the Florida Panther

US
Lands
Waters

There are only an estimated 180 Florida panthers left on Earth, pushed to slivers of land that total just 5 percent of their historic range. It doesn’t have to be this way.

The solution is simple: Florida panthers need habitat, and every piece of land we can conserve is critical to the panther's survival. For more than 50 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has protected millions of acres—from prime Florida panther habitat to nearly every county across the U.S.

But LWCF expires in less than 70 days. And unless Congress renews it, prime panther habitat like the Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge & Conservation Area and Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge will continue to go unprotected. And so will hundreds of other important conservation programs that help save species, keep our water clean, and protect nature across the country.

That's why we must push to renew LWCF now! The 70 day countdown is on and these essential programs are at risk.

With your support, we can help protect thousands more acres of lands to give the panther a fighting chance. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depend on.

Don't Let the Land and Water Conservation Fund Expire

Dear TNC

With threats to nature rapidly increasing, it is especially critical to renew the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) before it expires in September. We cannot afford to put essential conservation programs in jeopardy.

LWCF is one of America's most important and successful conservation programs, benefiting every state in the nation. LWCF has a 50-year track record of helping provide clean water, conserve natural resources, increase recreation opportunities and support communities.

Vital conservation work will be hampered if LWCF expires. Plus, renewing it and increasing its funding will not cost taxpayers a penny because it's paid for with drilling fees from oil and gas companies. I ask you to reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
