The goal of the week-long trek is to raise awareness about protecting and restoring wildlife corridors across the state
Although major interstates like I-4 are vital to the movement of people across our state, they create major barriers to the movement of wildlife and water.
In an effort to raise the public’s awareness about how to permanently connect and protect these fragmented landscapes, The Mosaic Company, a longtime supporter of environmental education and habitat conservation in the state of Florida, has once again partnered with the Florida Wildlife Corridor to support its 2018 expedition.
The “Heartland 2 Headwaters” cross-county trek which crosses through parts of West Central Florida, marks the second time Mosaic has provided funding to highlight the significance of creating and sustaining a statewide corridor that wildlife can use to access different habitats.
The first expedition in 2012 extended from Florida Bay in southern Florida to the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. This year’s trek begins in the Everglades Headwaters on April 15, 2018 and ends on April 22, 2018 in the Green Swamp.
