Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the South Florida Water Management District were recognized for their efforts in the removal of invasive Burmese Python by Governor Ron DeSantis.

FWC and SFWMD removed more than 3, 600 Burmese Pythons from South Florida Everglades Systems.

The SFWMD’s Python Elimination Program and FWC’s Python Action Team were created in March and April of 2017.

I'm proud that our recent efforts to expedite the removal of invasive Burmese pythons from the Everglades are yielding results.
Governor DeSantis.
