Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition Nears Halfway Point of Statewide Journey
The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is nearing the halfway mark of their trip up the length of Florida - 1,000 miles in 100 days. Their mission is to publicize the need to connect the state's disjointed wild areas into a continuous wildlife corridor. Carlton Ward Jr., Joe Guthrie, Mallory Lykes Dimmitt and Elam Stoltzfus discuss some of the surprises they found on the trip so far. Those include carrying 60-pound packs through the middle of palmetto patches - and how their preconceptions about the trip have jibed with the realities of traversing the length of Florida.
