The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition was a 100 day trek from the Everglades National Park toward Okefenokee National Forest in southern Georgia. The expedition traversed the wildlife habitats, watersheds and participating working farms and ranches, which comprise the Florida Wildlife Corridor opportunity area. The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition aims to protect and restore connected landscapes throughout the Florida Peninsula to create a viable corridor from the Everglades to Georgia. A documentary film was made by award winning videographer Elam Stoltzfus, that will be distributed to PBS stations across the country. The project was coordinated by the presenting station, WUSF Public Media with sponsor, The Mosaic Company. The event in Tampa is the Premier Screening of the film to the public.
Bear biologist Joe Guthrie, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr., along with videographer Elam Stoltzfus were the core of the team that made the journey and the documentary. They will be at the screening event to talk about their experiences and answer questions from the public.
