The Everglades Avenger Team is dedicated to eliminating as many invasive Florida Burmese Pythons as possible. We can use your help!
Donna Kalil is the leader of the Everglades Avenger Team. After catching her first Florida Burmese python on Christmas night 2015 with her family in tow, she has eliminated more than 100 pythons from South Florida Ecosystems. Several had up to 35 eggs in them! "The impact that these invasive animals are having on our wildlife is astounding and every one we eliminate from our natural ecosystem is a step in the right direction".
It takes persistence and perseverance to find these apex predators and the journey is a perilous one. Join our team to help protect our native wildlife.
Hopefully you wont, but if you do, take a picture, send it to us via Donna Kalil on Facebook messenger and keep an eye on it. We will get someone out there to eliminate the threat. Or report sightings to Exotic Species Hotline at 888-IveGot1, online at www.IVEGOT1.org, or smartphone app "IVEGOT!" https://bit.ly/2LGp9QTF
The proceeds of every Avenger product you purchase goes directly to the Avenger Team or directly to the other hunters listed depending on the item.
We are not going to be able to catch and remove all the pythons that are in South Florida, we can only hope to slow their spread and give relief to the animals in the areas we patrol. But hopefully, through scientific analysis we will come up with a solution.
Dont let it Loose! If you or someone you know has an exotic pet such as a snake or lizard or for that matter even a domestic pet like a dog, cat or rabbit, please do not let it loose and think you are doing it a favor. They likely will not survive in the wild. If they can survive then they can destroy delicate ecosystems like the Burmese Python has done to our beloved Everglades. http://www.dontletitloose.com/
June 8, 2018 11:30 p.m. I found a 4 ft, 4 lb Ball python at the entrance to Everglades National Park, Shark Valley. His owner let him go thinking he was doing him a favor but in reality, had I not come along when I did, he would have been gator food. The poor thing was scared stiff and didn't move when I approached him. So I named him Benny and took him home. He is now a part of my family.
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue to eliminate the threat of this apex predator from our beloved Everglades and surrounding areas. Your generous donation will help fund our mission.
