About this book

Eastern bison roamed Florida into the 1800s. Red wolves disappeared in the 1920s. The dusky seaside sparrow was declared extinct in 1990. It's too soon to say whether the 116 threatened, endangered, or imperiled animal species currently found in the state will also fall victim to climate change, extermination, overdevelopment or poisons. But as long as they remain, there will be men and women who work tirelessly on their behalf.

Combining adventure, natural history, and cultural history, the book features chapters tracking panthers, black bears, whooping cranes, manatees, sea turtles, even ivory-billed woodpeckers - which may or may not be extinct. The author travels into prairies, woods, springs and ocean to come face to face with these and other captivating creatures and learns firsthand about their strangled lives and fragile habitats.

With a chapter on the impact of non-native populations of Burmese pythons and Rhesus monkeys, as well as a chilling epilogue that imagines the peninsula one hundred years in the future, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about the current state of wild Florida.
