FL Wildlife Corridor Documentary Airs Tonight On WUSF TV; PBS Is Next

Nov 19, 2015

The documentary of the second cross-Florida trip of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, "The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida,” will have its first broadcast airing Thursday at 8 p.m. on WUSF TV, Channel 16.

Broadcasts on PBS stations around the country are next.

The documentary played to a sold-out crowd last week during a premiere at the Tampa Theatre. So many people were turned away that a second showing was held the following weekend. It follows the journey earlier this year of Tampa conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, Tampa nature photographer Carlton Ward Jr., and St. Petersburg bear biologist Joe Guthrie as they traveled from Central Florida through the Panhandle to the Alabama state line near Pensacola.

This was their second journey - the first in 2012 had the group traveling 1,000 miles in 100 days, hiking, biking and kayaking from the tip of the Everglades north to the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. (You can read - and listen to -WUSF's weekly coverage of the expedition HERE.)

WUSF Television Program Director Susan Geiger said beginning next year, the documentary will be distributed to other public television stations. The documentary for the first Wildlife Corridor Expedition also aired on public stations around the country, she said.

Here's the upcoming television schedule:
