Publisher Description:
In Swamp Screamer, Charles Fergus tracks the fifty or so panthers that survive in Florida and the wildlife biologists who are trying doggedly to save them. These experts devise high-tech "captive breeding" strategies in the hope of making the panthers increase and multiply. In the course of their work, they rub shoulders with all sorts of colorful characters - sportsmen, developers, theme-park owners, radical animal lovers - who see the panther as a threat to their own enterprises or as a rallying point for their activism. Swamp Screamer is an account of the complex scientific and political efforts that preoccupy the wildlife movement today; it is also a history of the vanishing wilds of Florida, and an affecting portrait of the panthers themselves.
