In South Florida, where the Everglades meet the bays, environmental challenges abound. Sea level rise threatens homes and real estate. Invasive species imperil native plants and animals. Pesticides reduce the risk of mosquito-borne diseases, but at what cost? WLRN's award-winning environment reporting strives to capture the color and complexity of human interaction with one of the most biodiverse areas of the planet.

Nearly 1,000 miles in 70 days -- that's how long a trio of wildlife enthusiasts are traversing the state, from Central Florida to the Alabama state line. 

Just after a 50-mile paddle down the Apalachicola River, expedition members photographer Carlton Ward Jr., conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt and bear biologist Joe Guthrie sat down to talk with Florida Matters about the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition

WUSF’s Steve Newborn has been meeting up with the team at various spots along the journey, and brings us an update from the shores of Apalachicola Bay for Florida Matters on Tuesday, March 10 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 15 at 7:30 a.m. on WUSF 89.7 FM.
