S. FL Movie Premiere: Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition

FREE Admission

On January 17, 2012, we kicked off a 1000 mile expedition over a 100 day period to increase public awareness and generate support for the Florida Wildlife Corridor project.

Bear biologist Joe Guthrie, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, and photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr trekked from the Everglades National Park toward Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia. The trio traversed the wildlife habitats, watersheds and participating working farms and ranches, which comprise the Florida Wildlife Corridor opportunity area.

The team documented the corridor through photography, video streams, radio reports, daily updates on social media and digital networks, and a host of activities for reporters, landowners, celebrities, conservationists, politicians and other guests. Award-winning cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus documented the expedition to produce a film about the journey and the Florida Wildlife Corridor.

Bio: Carlton Ward Jr is an environmental photojournalist and eighth generation Floridian focused on Florida's living heritage. His work is published in magazines including Audubon, Smithsonian, Geo and Nature Conservancy. His 2009 book, Florida Cowboys, won a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards and for that work Popular Photography Magazine featured him as an artist working to save vanishing America. Carlton is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and president of the Legacy Institute for Nature & Culture (LINC). He is a grantee of the National Geographic Society for the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, a 100-day, 1000 mile trek he led from Everglades National Park to the Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia. There will be an exhibition of this work at Palm Beach Photographic Center in March 2013. See CarltonWard.com and FloridaWildlifeCorridor.org.
