During the research challenge, students learn from Director Ricky Pires herself about topics such as radio collars, infrared cameras and telemetry. We learn about the types of research being done today and how it is helping to save this endangered species. Students watch an exciting panther capture video starring the FWC Panther Team. Ricky shares her personal experiences and hand in panther research.
