Florida Python Hunters in the Everglades

 Florida Python Hunters in the Everglades

For the first time in Everglades history, the preserved National Park is allowing expert python hunters to enter their territory and hunt for the invasive Burmese pythons that have been taking over the Everglades for years. These creatures essentially prey on all animals in the wetlands, and they have been consuming almost every living species in their path. According to CBSMiami, python hunters will be paid by the state and the expansion could begin as early as this month. The goal is to remove the deadly pythons from the park to ensure that the wildlife is being preserved and not harmed. These invasive predators have been expanding rapidly and the native animals are suffering because of this. Everglades Holiday Park, a south Florida alligator park, explains what this means for the future of the Everglades and how this could affect sightseeing in Florida.

The giant snakes have been destroying native wildlife and they are taking over the Everglades, even causing the American Alligator to feel threatened in its own environment. By allowing trained and authorized hunters come in and hunt the dangerous pythons, the Everglades will be able to overcome this growing issue that has been around for some time. The Fish and Wildlife Commission ensures that this project won’t harm the Everglades in any way, and the goal is simply to get rid of the invasive species. Because these pythons are consuming every animal in their path, this has been affecting native wildlife and their food sources.

When it comes to sightseeing in Florida, the wonderous Everglades Park is the perfect destination to explore and take in all that these unique wetlands have to offer. By preserving the wildlife and solving this issue, people from all over the world can experience one of nature’s greatest gifts with an abundance of wildlife surrounding the park. Everglades Holiday Park, located in sunny south Florida offers the ultimate Everglades experience with airboat tours, boat rentals, and animal encounters to name a few. Tackling the python problem will allow native species to flourish and people will be able to experience unlimited wildlife through a thrilling airboat tour.
