PATH OF THE PANTHER


WHAT: PATH OF THE PANTHER -   A Grizzly Creek, Wild Path, Appian Way, and National Geographic Production,  will be aired on Nat Geo April 22 (Earth Day) at 10:50pm. It will also air in April on Disney+


AVAILABLE FOR ZOOM OR PHONE INTERVIEWS: Director Eric Bendick, National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Carlton Ward Jr., Impact Producer Tori Linder  

 

ABOUT: Drawn in by the haunting specter of the Florida panther, National Geographic Explorer and photographer Carlton Ward Jr. and a coalition of biologists, ranchers, conservationists and Indigenous peoples find themselves on the front lines of an accelerating battle between forces of renewal and destruction that have pushed the Everglades to the brink of ecological collapse. This odyssey of heartbreak and hope is the culmination of more than five years of field research, 500,000 still images, and over 800 hours of ultra-high definition camera trap footage. Against all odds, wild panthers have been stunningly captured in their native ecosystem, as they’ve never been filmed before.

The film is the cornerstone of the “Path of the Panther” project, supported by the National Geographic Society and many other partners that inspired the passage of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act — the first legislation of its kind and a blueprint for addressing habitat fragmentation and species extinction across the globe. The project continues to grow today, and the world stands at a crossroads with the Florida panther guiding the way.

Jon,

From living through a nightmarish, alleged neglect situation to being reunited with his loving family, Junior the beagle has had quite an extraordinary adventure.

More than a year ago, Junior was reported missing by his family. Hope was all but lost for him and his devastated family until the Humane Society of the United States found him on a property in Dixie County, Florida, during a lifesaving rescue of more than 140 dogs living in terrible conditions.

Now he's happily back with his family where he'll get all the pets, treats and love that a dog could want. Happy endings like this are only possible because of supporters like you.
