"Python Hunting" by Dylann Turffs

Pythons have become the face of invasive species in South Florida and are often blamed for all of the Everglades' problems. Dylann Turffs discusses how the python problem came to be and share stories of her experience encountering and removing pythons from the greater Everglades over the last decade. How does the way we value or fear certain animals shape how we choose to manage them and what treatment of them we tolerate and encourage?

Dylann Turffs is a naturalist, environmental educator, and outreach specialist with nearly a decade of experience nerding out about south Florida's natural spaces.
