On April 8 from 6:30-7:30 p.m., the Conservancy of Southwest Florida will be dedicating its after hours program to the Florida panther with an enlightening lecture by David Shindle. Held on the second Tuesday of every month from November to June, the evening lectures series held at the Jeannie Meg Smith Theater (part of the Eaton Conservation Hall) is a celebration of the organization’s fiftieth season, focusing on ecological programs within the organization’s purview.
April’s installment will feature one of the Conservancy’s senior biologists David Shindle, and his lecture, “Florida Panther Conservation: Historical Perspective and Future Prospects.” Shindle has spent more than a decade of professional field experience involving the survey, capture and handling of the Florida panther, helping develop the future research projects to help stay this species from extinction.
Tuesday’s lecture will delve into his field research, the status of the Florida panther as of now, and the present and future programs designed to save this perilously endangered species.
