On Dec 5, 2019, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the opening of registration for the 2020 Python Challenge™ Python Bowl. The State of Florida has teamed up with the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee and other partners to support the Committee's Ocean to Everglades (O2E) initiative. The Python Bowl will begin January 10th and members of the public will sign up for training, then compete to remove as many snakes as possible from the wild. "The protection of our environment and natural resources is critical," said Governor DeSantis. "Invasive Burmese pythons have decimated local wildlife and pose a massive threat to natural food chains and flora and fauna. The 2020 Python Bowl is sure to be a great success, and I look forward to the positive effects it will have on preserving and protecting the Everglades ecosystem." Join the Python Challenge™ to learn how you can participate in this one-of-a-kind competition.
