Filmmaker Eric Bendick provides a priceless portrait of the timely topics of conservation and saving species. For Path of the Panther photographer Carlton Ward Jr., the subject matter is a personal one. Ward's ancestors moved to Florida in the 1800s. "As a kid, I came here thinking about our ranch," he says, but the conservationist cameraperson admits now, "as an adult, I come here thinking about all ranches." Ward shares with viewers words and a possible course of action to end animal extinction on Earth. "This panther is an emblem of this land that is very much endangered," he notes. "The wildlife corridor is a way that we can save a path for the panther or it's going to be lost."
