Wildlife Corridor Expedition Tours Florida's Largest State-owned Ranch

Feb 20, 2012

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition has just come out of one of the wildest places in Florida - if not the entire country - the Fakahatchee strand. We also speak with Mallory Lykes Dimmitt on how the Babcock Ranch Preserve is faring as a publically-run ranch.

The expedition is traveling up the rugged heart of Florida. Their mission - calling attention to the need to connect the state's disjointed wild areas into a contiguous wildlife corridor. This week, after leaving the Everglades, members Carlton Ward Jr. and Elam Stoltzfus spoke on their experience. The group then traversed the Babcock Ranch Preserve, in Charlotte and Lee counties. It's the largest state-owned conservation parcel in Florida.
