MissionThe Florida Wildlife Corridor's mission is to connect, protect, and restore corridors of conserved lands and waters essential for the survival of Florida's diverse wildlife. We demonstrate that a statewide corridor still exists in Florida, and we advocate for its permanent protection. Collaborative efforts to ensure the long-term survival of the Florida Wildlife Corridor will benefit wildlife, watersheds and people for generations to come. We combine conservation science with compelling imagery and rich storytelling to heighten the visibility of the Florida Wildlife Corridor and inspire its protection. Through education and citizen engagement, the Florida Wildlife Corridor advocates for the protection of the missing links needed to connect conservation lands in the Corridor. Our Florida Wildlife Corridor Expeditions result in documentaries, books, videos and vivid photographic presentations that introduce these natural areas to Florida residents and visitors of all ages. A corridor is a natural, continuous swath of lands or waters that wildlife, including the Florida Black Bear and the Florida Panther, travel to access different habitats or for parts of their life cycle. These connected wild areas ensure the long-term survival of many native species, as well as the health of our waters and Florida's rural way of life. Without long-term protection, significant portions of the Florida Wildlife Corridor are at risk of fragmentation – either by roads or other development. Fragmenting the Corridor threatens the ability of wildlife to travel, restricts breeding opportunities and ultimately harms plant and animal communities. Breaking up the Florida Wildlife Corridor would also be detrimental to Florida's fresh water resources. We have a fleeting opportunity to keep natural and rural landscapes connected in order to protect the waters that sustain us, the working farms and ranches that feed us, the forests that clean our air, the coastal zones that protect us from storms and the habitat that all of these lands provide for Florida's diverse wildlife.
