Fl Wildlife Corridor Expedition

About This Section
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 have reunited. They're now traveling a 70-day, 925-mile journey once again through the wild heart of the state. This time, they’ll go west, traversing the Green Swamp, the Big Bend area and crossing Florida’s Panhandle, all the way to the Alabama state line. WUSF will check 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.
