FL Python Challenge Florida Python Challenge

FL Everglades Annual Python Challenge – Burmese Python Hunt

Burmese Pythons are an invasive species that is wreaking havoc on the Everglades ecosystem. To help save the Everglades as we know it the State of Florida has developed a unique solution. It is called The Python Challenge.

What is the Python Challenge? The Python Challenge is an annual Python Capture event that features valuable cash prizes and awards to individuals who capture and euthanize Burmese Pythons. The Python Challenge began in 2013.

Egrets, turtles, and other local species are threatened by Burmese Pythons

The dates for the 2022 event are August 5 through August 14th. The annual Python Challenge is a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission-sanctioned competition. The competition is based in the Everglades. The goal is for participants to attempt to capture and kill as many Burmese pythons as possible.

Previous attempts at controlling this giant snake invasion have been primarily ineffective, mostly due to the fact that the pythons are well camouflaged and exceptionally difficult to find. The number of Burmese Pythons living in the Everglades is estimated to be well over 100,000 snakes.

The video below describes the proper way to hunt and handle Burmese Pythons in the wild. Thank you for visiting and bookmarking https://paradisecoastliving.com.
