Florida Matters Preview: Florida Wildlife Corridor 2018 Expedition

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition team has trekked through scrub, swamp and forest from one end of the state to the other. 

Their goal is to highlight the need to protect lands that connect Florida's wild areas. This week on Florida Matters we meet the explorers and discuss their third expedition, which gets underway later this month.

In this preview, host Robin Sussingham talks with two members of the team, Carlton Ward Jr. and Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, about what has changed in Florida since their last trip in 2015.

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
Robin is Senior Editor at WUSF, spearheading the station's podcasting initiatives and helping to guide the vision for special reporting projects and creative storytelling. She created The Zest, the station's podcast that's all about food, which she continues to host and serve as senior producer.
