New Hope (/25), 2018
20 x 30 in
This is the first female panther documented in the Northern Everglades since 1973. She provides new hope that her species, no longer isolated to the southern tip of Florida, can repopulate its historic range throughout the peninsula and beyond. State biologists first confirmed her presence at Babcock Ranch in November 2016 and worked with Carlton to deploy a specialized camera trap to capture this historic image.
