The Florida Wildlife Corridor integrates Florida’s leading conservation science with compelling fine art images and rich storytelling to raise awareness about the Corridor and the need to connect and protect it. The centerpiece of our awareness campaign is the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition.

On January 10, 2015 we begin a new 1000-mile leg of our Expedition, to highlight a wildlife corridor from Central Florida to the Gulf Coast, through the Big Bend, and across the Panhandle all the way to Alabama, where our trek will conclude.

We’ll document our journey the entire way, using social media to showcase imagery and reporting from the field. We’ll host a series of Saturday Trail Mixers, where followers can join the Expedition team and participate in our trek. We are committed to bringing the Florida Wildlife Corridor to life through our Expedition. Join us!

Why We Walk

  • To connect, protect and restore corridors of conserved lands and waters essential for the survival of Florida’s diverse wildlife
  • To restore and protect our life-giving springs and rivers
  • To sustain food production, economies, and culture surrounding Gulf seafood harvests
  • To restore longleaf pine forests while conserving farms, working lands, and the communities they support
