By foot, kayak, and horseback, the expedition team journeyed north from Everglades National Park to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia. When their journey was complete, conservation photographer Carlton Ward Jr., documentarian Elam Stoltzfus, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, and bear biologist Joe Guthrie had traveled 1,000 miles in 100 days. The ambitious trek ― the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition ― is the focus of a new exhibition at the Tampa Bay History Center. Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: The Photographs of Carlton Ward Jr. will take visitors on a virtual expedition from the Everglades to the Okefenokee, featuring a collection of large-format images taken by Ward, along with maps, video footage, news reports, and equipment used by team members during the expedition. Now through May 5th this is a MUST-SEE in Tampa Bay!
