The GTM National Esuarine Research Reserve and the Guana River Wdlife Management Area protect a large stretch of forest, ponds, marshes, and hammocks that provide important habitat for a wide variety of coastal flora and fauna.

Thankful for thriving turkeys 🦃🙌🏻 With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we are thankful for our state’s thriving wild turkey populations. Out of the five North American subspecies of wild turkey, two varieties are found in the Sunshine State. In fact, the Osceola wild turkey (also known as the Florida wild turkey) can only be found here! Wild turkey meat, which is leaner than store-bought birds, provides a delicious and clean-eating alternative for the Thanksgiving feast. We work with The National Wild Turkey Federation to conserve our state’s wild turkey populations and provide sustainable hunting opportunities through the use of scientific data.

It’s been some time since I’ve been able to assist @myfwc @fwcresearch team. Yesterday was an incredible experience assisting a beached juvenile sperm whale. The outcome was unfortunate, but an amazing and unique experience. Thank you to the FWC team, first responders and the volunteers. #myfwc #fwc #whale

#Repost @myfwc ・・・ Remarkable rebound😸 The story of the Florida panther is one of our state’s greatest conservation successes. Once on the brink of extinction, this endangered animal has made a remarkable comeback from 20-30 individuals in the 1990s to 120-230 today! With the help of our partners, we continue to conserve our official state animal while balancing the needs of our residents and visitors. The Florida Panther Festival took place on Nov. 4 at Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens.

Lobster poacher gets caught! A commercial fishing vessel pulling stone crab traps out of the water caught the attention of our officers. As Officers Way and Messier approached the vessel to conduct a fisheries inspection, the operator began dumping wrung lobster tails overboard. Before he could continue to dump any more illegal catch, our officers boarded the violator’s vessel and found another 41 wrung lobster tails hidden in the engine compartment. The subject was charged accordingly and will have to appear in court for the violations. If you suspect a fish, wildlife, boating or environmental law violation, report it to our Wildlife Alert Reward Program by calling 888-404-FWCC (*FWC or #FWC#FWC on a cellphone), texting/emailing Tip@MyFWC.com.

Friendly roommates 🤗🐍🐢The Eastern indigo snake is one of the more than 350 different species that are known to inhabit the burrows of gopher tortoises. Indigo snakes use these burrows as shelter during the winter and as a refuge from intense summer heat during the warmer months. Females are also known to deposit their eggs in gopher tortoise burrows.

Fierce nocturnal hunters 🌚✨ The great horned owl is a skilled predator that is capable of taking down large prey. Rodents—such as rats, mice, squirrels, and rabbits—are frequently hunted, but mammals up to the size of skunks or domestic cats are taken on occasion. Birds, such as egrets, waterfowl, and nestling hawks, are also preyed upon by the great horned owl. You may see or hear this large owl year-round while recreating outdoors near open oak forests or pinelands. Swipe up on our Instagram Story to learn more about Florida’s largest owl!
