  • Conversations 2.11: Dr. Richard Chandler

    Recently, FWC revealed the final product of the South Florida Deer Study, a multi year paper that provided a in depth examination of how deer in both Big Cypress and Panther NWR behave and are affected by hunters, predators, and hydrology. This study is remarkably timely, given the backdrop of the Western Everglades Restoration Project coupled with hunters observations of the Big Cypress deer herd.
