WINK News is taking a closer look at our state animal, the Florida panther, which is one of the rarest animals in North America. There are fewer than 200 left in Southwest Florida.

Investigative Reporter Celine McArthur looked into the impact of development on their survival. Now, she is sitting down with the son of the founders of the Naples Zoo, Director of Conservation Tim Tetzlaff, to find out what we need to know about the Florida panther to better protect them.

You can watch her conversation with Tetzlaff and learn how you can help protect the panthers in the video above.
