Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition

On January 17, 2012, The FL Wildlife Corridor Expedition team kicked off a 1000 mile expedition over a 100 day period to increase public awareness of the need to protect and restore Florida's Wildlife habitat. Bear biologist Joe Guthrie, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, and photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr. trekked from the Everglades National Park toward Okefenokee National Forest in southern Georgia. The trio traversed the wildlife habitats, watersheds and participating working farms and ranches, which comprise the Florida Wildlife Corridor opportunity area. The team documented its journey through photography, video streams, radio reports, daily updates on social media and digital networks, and a host of activities for reporters, landowners, celebrities, conservationists, politicians and other guests. Award-winning cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus produced a film about the expedition and the Florida Wildlife Corridor. Join the trio on their expedition through audio and video reports available below. . All Reports are made possible by our production sponsor, The Mosaic Company.
