The 2013 Python Challenge™ is hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). However the two free public events in south Florida and the month-long competition to harvest Burmese pythons would not be possible without the dedication and collaboration of many individuals and organizations supporting this effort to inform the public about Burmese pythons and their threat to the Florida Everglades.


We are grateful to the many partners participating in the 2013 Python Challenge™.  Key partners include:

The Future of Hunting in Florida

University of Florida

Zoo Miami

The Nature Conservancy

Wildlife Foundation of Florida

Other participating organizations and agencies include:
