Public Asked to Share Mink Sightings
FWC biologists want to know more about mink, and they’re asking the public to help them gather information. These semi-aquatic animals are typically found in or near water but appear to be quite rare in Florida. Mink’s secretive nature makes them very difficult to study, and biologists know little about their distribution and abundance.
To meet this challenge and improve our understanding of this species, the FWC launched a Web-based reporting system that allows Florida residents to share mink sightings with biologists.
