  • Conservation Lecture: Cracking the Code: Finding Florida's Hidden Pythons

    Mar 21st, 2019
    6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

    The first wild Burmese python in Florida was documented in 1979. In the past decade, however, their numbers appear to have skyrocketed. The negative impact on native wildlife populations is just beginning to be understood. Worse yet, except when they're basking on roads or levees these giant snakes are notoriously difficult to find. 

    Join Ian Bartoszek, biologist at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, to hear what he's learned from challenging years of research on the pythons of Collier County and possible paths forward for residents and land managers in dealing with this new member of the ecosystem. Naples Zoo is one of the funders of this important research.

    Gather at the python exhibit for an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.

    RSVP for the lecture here!
