Wildlife Corridor Expedition Crosses Florida's Wildlife Barrier - I-4

TAMPA (2012-3-19) -

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is swinging east of Orlando's sprawl and are paddling up the St. John's River. On Sunday, they crossed one the state's great dividing lines for wildlife - Interstate 4. They traversed I-4 at the site of a planned underpass, which is crucial to achieving their goal of a continuous wildlife corridor.

Expedition members started their trek in January at the tip of the Everglades, and they plan to end it next month at the Okeefenokee Swamp in Georgia. WUSF's Carson Cooper reports they're about to be the first to walk across all the conservation areas in Volusia County.
