The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition team has trekked through scrub, swamp and forest from one end of the state to the other. WUSF News travels with them on the third expedition, which started Sunday.
They have documented their journeys in film, books and photography exhibitions with a goal demonstrating the urgent need for an unbroken spine of wilderness running the length of Florida to give wildlife a chance for survival.
This time around the explorers want to highlight an area of wilderness in Central Florida that is threatened on all sides by urban development and transportation infrastructure including Interstate 4.
