This August, you can help control the invasive Burmese python, which does not belong in the ecosystem of the Florida Keys and poses a threat to native wildlife. The Florida Python Challenge®is an exciting conservation effort which helps protect the rare Everglades habitat and the animals that live there from these invasive, nonnative snakes. The hunt will take place over nine days, and requires training in order to compete. Prizes will be awarded with special recognition and prizes given to veteran and active members of our armed services.
