(NaplesHerald.com) – The Naples Zoo continues to be a valuable safe haven for injured or orphaned Florida panthers.
Their newest arrivals are a 6-month-old female dubbed Sassy, and, most recently, a 2- to 3-month-old male kitten.
The Zoo’s carnivore team is caring for the Florida panther kittens in a collaborative effort with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, according to a Naples Zoo press release.
As the population of panthers continues to grow, the Zoo says partnerships like these will be vital to educate Floridians and, in turn, care for the state’s wildlife.
