Everglades Sunset
Florida Wildlife Expedition Travels 1,000 Miles to Georgia

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition crossed the finish line nearly 100 days after setting off in the Everglades on a 1,000-mile journey to the Georgia state line. Their goal - inspiring the creation of a permanent unbroken wildlife corridor.

Wildlife photographer Carlton Ward Jr., filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus, bear biologist Joe Guthrie and conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt have wrapped up the traveling part of their Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. Now, they have to make their vision a reality.

WUSF was one of the sponsors of the trip. Reporter Steve Newborn has been following the group since they left the tip of the Everglades. We chronicle the progress of the expedition, hear from the "Cowboy Poet" on a ranch in Central Florida, and talk with the members about the highlights of the trip - and its future - as they paddle up the Suwanee River, near their final destination in Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp.
