Ward Jr. discussed his experiences with the “Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition,” a 100-day, 1,000-mile trek from the Everglades National Park in Florida to the Okefenoke National Wildlife Refuge in Southern Georgia.

The expedition via kayak, mountain bike and horseback led to the discovery of a viable natural corridor for wildlife through the Florida peninsula.

“There is still a ribbon of green land that you can connect through the state,” said Ward Jr.

The Institute for Biodiversity Law and Policy and Environmental Law Society at Stetson co-sponsored the event in the Great Hall, at Stetson Law in Gulfport, 1401 61st St. S.

The next biodiversity lecture is scheduled for Oct. 30.
