Path of the Panther – Apr. 20th

On Thursday, April 20th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series and Gallatin Valley Earth Day present the award-winning new documentary from Bozeman-based Grizzly Creek Films and director Eric Bendick, Path of the Panther.

The screening will be preceded at 6:00pm by a reception in the Emerson ballroom with music, food, drink, our annual silent auction and Earth Day information and opportunities from event sponsors Gallatin Valley Earth Day.

Drawn in by the haunting specter of the Florida panther, a wildlife photographer, veterinarians, ranchers, conservationists, and Indigenous peoples find themselves on the front lines of an accelerating battle between forces of renewal and destruction that have pushed the Everglades to the brink of ecological collapse.

In a struggle resonating across the globe, the panther’s habitat is becoming an island. Its lush territory transformed into subdivisions and roadways. A paradise paved over and nearly forgotten.

Perched on the edge of extinction, the panther is an emblem of our once connected world. Showing us how to protect the Earth’s last wild places. Or else, a harbinger, of what could befall our planet, if the ‘Path of the Panther’ becomes a dead end.
