TAMPA (2012-4-24) -

Wildlife photographer Carlton Ward Jr., filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus, bear biologist Joe Guthrie and conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt have wrapped up the traveling part of the expedition. They crossed the finish line Sunday, nearly 100 days after taking off in the Everglades.

The Florida Wildlife Corridor's goal is to inspire the creation of a permanent unbroken wildlife corridor. WUSF's Steve Newborn kept track of the expedition - and joined in on occasion - and was there when they crossed the finish line. He talks with WUSF Morning Edition host Carson Cooper.
