By Lucca




                                   Fill the Everglades.

                                   Leaving so fast I don’t think they’ll last.

                                   Only a hundred left in the world.

                            Mrs. Ricky’s Wings of Hope will help the Florida panther.

                                    Intelligent is what they are, climbing is what they do.

                                    Dangerous, superfast, a climbing machine.

                                    Anyone who’d dare to hunt them will face the consequences.


                                    Panthers scar bark.

                                    Always marking their territory.

                                    Natural habitat is the Everglades.

                                    They’re losing their habitat.

                                    Hunt prey often.

                                    Endangered species that we need to help.

                                    Ready to bite.

                      Home is Southwest Florida.

 “Tales by Emile, Alden, and Grace”


  • Panthers are dying out as fast as germs fall off when you put germ-x on.
  • Don’t start fires in the woods.
  • Do collect trash from the woods like an anteater would at an ant buffet.
  • Insects hide in boots. No, No, No not cowboy boots! Boots in the cabbage palm.
  • Do you realize how important protecting our awesome wildlife is? So zoom out there like a panther and save our wildlife.
  • Water is what gives he world energy! It grows plants for oxygen, keeps animals alive to continue their all important food chain.         Alden
  • Humans need places to live, work, and play. But we also need to preserve land. By keeping some lands undeveloped, we help plants, animals and ourselves. Keeping a part of our surroundings undeveloped will help many living things, including man, survive for years to come.   Grace
