The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is a journey with a purpose.
Three people are currently in the middle of a 70-day, 1000-mile journey across the state of Florida called the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. This marks the second such expedition by the team, and it’s being done to study and bring more attention to conservation efforts that need to happen in order to save Florida wildlife.
The team is made up of conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, conservation photographer Carlton Ward Jr., and wildlife biologist Joe Guthrie. The three are currently trekking their way through the Florida wilderness as part of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. As they move they are collecting scientific data to use in analyzing the areas to ensure that the wildlife populations in Florida remain where they should.
Another key aspect of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is the public awareness that is being raised about conservation in Florida. The group is doing an amazing job of utilizing social media to publish pictures and blog updates of their entire trip via the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition website, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
