Today we speak with three members of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, who just completed a 900-mile trek from Polk County to the Panhandle. Over about 70 days Joe Guthrie,Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, and Carlton Ward Jr biked, walked, and kayaked through State Parks, National Forests, ranch lands and watersheds to bring attention to ecologically important areas throughout Florida’s heartland, such the Green Swamp that is a source of drinking water for millions of people and the habitats of the native Florida Black Bear. They share their experiences and stories and talk about the importance of a wildlife corridor that links protected and unprotected lands in the state.
