Burmese pythons are an invasive species in Florida, and an established population exists in the Florida Everglades. The FWC’s mission is the protect and manage native species, and the Python Challenge is one of the many tools we use to ensure the long-term well-being of our fish and wildlife resources.
By participating in the 2016 Python Challenge, you can help the FWC protect the Everglades and the wildlife that inhabit this unique Florida ecosystem. Protecting our native wildlife is the driving force behind the Python Challenge.
