Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition – Phase 2 - 2015
Back in 2012, four explorers spent 100 days walking and kayaking 1,000 miles up the length of Florida, from the tip of the Everglades to the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. The mission – to publicize the need to connect the state’s remaining wild areas. This year, the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is back. Three of the members reunited. Beginning in January, they met up at the Creek Ranch in Polk County and began a 70-day, 925-mile journey once again through the wild heart of the state. This time, they took a turn west, travelling through the Green Swamp, the Big Bend area and crossing Florida’s Panhandle, all the way to the Alabama state line. WUSF’s Steve Newborn checked in with them every week of the journey – and their quest to unite a patchwork of natural areas for wildlife to roam – before it’s too late. You can listen - and read our accounts - of their journey in weekly segments on WUSF 89.7.
Join the trio on their expedition through audio and video reports available below. All Reports are made possible by our production sponsor, The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay.
