Photo by @CarltonWard // A white egret preens its breeding plumage in Everglades National Park, which was that starting point of the 2012 Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. Our team paddled, hiked and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing the last remaining wildlife corridor still connecting the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) north to the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). Everglades wading bird populations have declined by more than 90 percent from their peak. Plume hunters aggressively killed wading birds in the late 1800s — as many as 5 million each year — primarily to provide feathers to decorate hats that were fashionable in America and Europe. Seeing birds hunted nearly to extinction galvanized the early environmental movement, including establishment of the modern National Audubon Society and President Roosevelt creating the first National Wildlife Refuge (Pelican Island) in 1903. Habitat loss for development and draining of wetlands have continued to challenge wading birds, but protecting more land and restoring the flow of the Everglades offers hope for recovery. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is working to bring more attention to the Florida Wildlife Corridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther, because without protecting a wildlife corridor to the north, the panther will have no path to recovery. The clock is ticking as 1000 people move to Florida each day. Five million acres of the Corridor are projected to be lost by 2070 if development continues to sprawl on its current trajectory. Please connect with me @carltonward and please share this story so we can help save the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. @fl_wildcorridor @insidenatgeo. #everglades #expedition #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild @audubonsociety @evergladesnps.

Path of the Panther. The reason I am focusing on the Florida panther for my current storytelling project with @NatGeo is that protecting the land needed for the wide-ranging panther will protect millions of acres of habitat for thousands of other species that depend on the panther’s domain. Not to mention saving Florida rangelands, timberlands, groves and the headwaters of the Everglades from development. As rancher Cary Lightsey told me, “the panther is going to have to help us save Florida.” A male panther has a home range of 200 square miles — four time larger than the city of Miami but approximately the same amount of wildlife habitat lost to development in Florida each year. This camera trap at Babcock Ranch shows a few of the species relying on the “Path of the Panther.” Please share this story to help inspire the protection of the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. @fl_wildcorridor #PathofthePanther #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild #panther  #corridor

Repost @NatGeo | Photo by @CarltonWard | A bobcat triggers a camera trap in rare scrub habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge -- ancient sand dunes that form the spine of Central Florida, rising 300 feet above sea level as the highest natural feature in the peninsula, and hosting a variety of endangered and endemic plants -- a time capsule to 2 million years ago when the rest of Florida was covered by a shallow sea. While much of the historic vegetation has been replaced by roads, crops and housing, this section of the ridge is protected by Archbold Biological Station (@archboldstation), which is a catalyst for research and conservation in the surrounding landscape. This outpost in the Northern Everglades is where we founded the Florida Wildlife Corridor project to communicate the vision for habitat protection needed to keep Florida wild. In 2012, with support from National Geographic, friends and I hiked, paddled and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing this last remaining wildlife corridor between the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) and the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). We crossed Archbold on day 35 of the journey. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is focused on the same Corridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther, because without protecting a wildlife corridor as a lifeline north from the Everglades, the panther will have no path to recovery.

#Repost from @natgeo with @regram.app ... Photo by @CarltonWard | Northwest Florida is said to have the highest concentration of freshwater springs in the world. Unfortunately, in many of Florida’s springs, eelgrass and other native vegetation has been overgrown and displaced by toxic green algae, seen here blanketing the bottom of Manatee Springs and ensconcing a manatee searching for food, as biologist Joe Guthrie (@joeguthrie8) observes from above. The proliferation of algae in recent years is attributed to increased pollution in springsheds and over pumping of the aquifer that has reduced spring flows to further concentrate pollutants. This photograph was captured on day 20 of the 70-day, 1000-mile Florida Wildlife Corridor #Glades2Gulf Expedition, a National Geographic supported project that traced the best remaining wildlife corridor connecting the Everglades Headwaters near Orlando to the vast pine forests of the Florida panhandle and Alabama.

Caught this guy taking in the evening on the dock after a swim. Juvenile Double-crested Cormorant, if I’m not mistaken. • • • #cormorant #doublecrestedcormorant #florida #floridabirds #floridalife #floridanature #floridawildlife #floridawildlifecorridor #sixmilecypress #sixmilecypressslough #swfl #swflnature #ftmyers #ftmyerssanibel #fortmyers #fortmyersflorida #bird #birdsofinstagram #birdingphotography #birds #birdstagram #birdy #seabird #igersfortmyers - 10 days ago

For the past two years I have been pursuing Florida panthers with camera traps — the only reliable method for photographing them. But two weeks ago, at Audubon's @CorkscrewSwamp, I had an encounter that I'll be talking about the rest of my life. I was driving into the backcountry and rounded a corner to see a panther sitting in the dirt road. I grabbed a telephoto lens and nervously snapped a few distant frames through the windshield before rolling a little closer and pulling off to the side. The panther was still 150 yards away in harsh 3 PM light. I was just watching when filmmaker Eric Bendick called. I whispered that I was staring at a real-life panther; the conference about our panther film would have to wait. Eric told me to take some video, and with the panther still sitting in the road in bad light, I complied, not realizing how jacked up I was until trying to hold my iPhone steady. After a few seconds of jittery self-narration, the panther started walking right towards me. When it sat back down in the road I resumed my video, but the panther started walking toward me again! I switched back to my main camera, put it in silent mode and held my breath. The panther kept coming, skirting the edge of the swamp behind grass and low palms. I let the shutter rip every time it revealed itself, coming closer with every step. Then it walked within 20 yards of my truck and sat down in an island of palms directly out my window! I filled the frame with its body and looked straight into its piercing eyes! I had mistaken it for a young male by its height, but was corrected when a ruffling in the palms transformed into a kitten. When the little guy got closer, its mother stood and continued down the road. Then they vanished into a thick hammock leaving me alone with my thoughts. When I went to change the batteries in my nearby camera trap, the process felt mechanical and empty. Remote cameras are invaluable, but it’s a whole different experience when the panther is looking right back at you. I am thankful @audubonsociety for protecting this place and giving me access their land. Please join me in following the #PathofthePanther for @natgeo. #floridawild #keepflwild

natgeo Photo by @CarltonWard // A white egret preens its breeding plumage in Everglades National Park, which was that starting point of the 2012 Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. Our team paddled, hiked and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing the last remaining wildlife corridor still connecting the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) north to the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). Everglades wading bird populations have declined by more than 90 percent from their peak. Plume hunters aggressively killed wading birds in the late 1800s — as many as 5 million each year — primarily to provide feathers to decorate hats that were fashionable in America and Europe. Seeing birds hunted nearly to extinction galvanized the early environmental movement, including establishment of the modern National Audubon Society and President Roosevelt creating the first National Wildlife Refuge (Pelican Island) in 1903. Habitat loss for development and draining of wetlands have continued to challenge wading birds, but protecting more land and restoring the flow of the Everglades offers hope for recovery. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is working to bring more attention to the Florida Wildlife Corridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther, because without protecting a wildlife corridor to the north, the panther will have no path to recovery. The clock is ticking as 1000 people move to Florida each day. Five million acres of the Corridor are projected to be lost by 2070 if development continues to sprawl on its current trajectory.

Don’t be fooled by Florida’s beautiful beaches and South Florida’s skyline. @carltonward is bringing awareness to one of Florida’s most prized possessions, the Florida Panther. The Panther has been a resident long before we turned this place into a tropical metropolis. It is our responsibility to bring awareness to our often over looked but most prized possessions and support efforts in the Florida wildlife corridor to keep Florida natural! #floridawildlifecorridor #conservation #florida #floridapanthers #wildflorida #wildfloridaoutdoors #floridaeverglades #babcockranch #puma #photography #natgeo #outside #southflorida #southfloridaphotographer #rickscott

Photo by @CarltonWard // I was exploring the Rainbow River with fellow conservation photographer Mac Stone when this cormorant let us swim up within a foot of its perch on a submerged palm. We had been watching him forage beneath the surface further downstream when I noticed that he was returning back upstream toward his favorite log. I was exhausted from swimming against the stiff current when I caught up and struggled to tread water holding my dome port at the water line. For an instant, the cormorant turned in my direction and spread his wings. Thankfully the focus and flash settings were ready to capture the moment. Then I relaxed and let the current swept me back downstream. The cormorant dried his wings a bit longer and then slid back into the water to chase more fish. We visited the Rainbow River during the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor #Glades2Gulf Expedition, which emphasized the importance of protecting a connected network of land and water throughout Florida.

Here, @carltonward examines one of his camera traps on Babcock Ranch, hoping for evidence of a Florida Panther. I spent the day speaking with Carlton and shadowing him in the field to see a sampling of what his work consists of on a daily basis. Through his work with @natgeo and @fl_wildcorridor , Carlton uses creative media and storytelling to display the importance of keystone species like the Florida Panther and the lands that it needs to survive. At @adventureterm we share Carlton’s belief in the power of storytelling, which is why we’ll be producing a short-film and investigative article as a result of this trip, to share with others the story of the Florida Panther and all of the lessons that it might teach us.

This is St. Petersburg, as viewed from a nature preserve just south of town. My conversation today with the Executive Director of the Florida Wildlife Corridor (@fl_wildcorridor ) helped to highlight the importance of these wild areas, which become exponentially more important as developed areas grow closer. Tomorrow, I’ll continue these discussions with the founder of the Florida Wildlife Corridor and @natgeo explorer Carlton Ward, Jr (@carltonward ). We’ll discuss his current work with the corridor and the Florida Panther, his thoughts on why this issue is critical to Florida’s future, and his understanding of storytelling’s powerful role in conservation and environmental journalism.

Photo by @CarltonWard | Path of the Panther >>>> The reason I am focusing on the Florida panther for my current storytelling project with @NatGeo is that protecting the land needed for the wide-ranging panther will protect millions of acres of habitat for thousands of other species that depend on the panther’s domain. Not to mention saving Florida rangelands, timberlands, groves and the headwaters of the Everglades from development. As rancher Cary Lightsey told me, “the panther is going to have to help us save Florida.” A male panther has a home range of 200 square miles — four time larger than the city of Miami but approximately the same amount of wildlife habitat lost to development in Florida each year. This camera trap at Babcock Ranch shows a few of the species relying on the “Path of the Panther.” Swipe for 3 more photos following this adult male panther: white-tailed deer, Osceola turkey and raccoon, all captured on the same trail during a couple weeks in January.

Photo by @CarltonWard | A bobcat triggers a camera trap in rare scrub habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge -- ancient sand dunes that form the spine of Central Florida, rising 300 feet above sea level as the highest natural feature in the peninsula, and hosting a variety of endangered and endemic plants -- a time capsule to 2 million years ago when the rest of Florida was covered by a shallow sea. While much of the historic vegetation has been replaced by roads, crops and housing, this section of the ridge is protected by Archbold Biological Station (@archboldstation), which is a catalyst for research and conservation in the surrounding landscape. This outpost in the Northern Everglades is where we founded the Florida Wildlife Corridor project to communicate the vision for habitat protection needed to keep Florida wild. In 2012, with support from National Geographic, friends and I hiked, paddled and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing this last remaining wildlife corridor between the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) and the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). We crossed Archbold on day 35 of the journey. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is focused on the same Corridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther, because without protecting a wildlife corridor as a lifeline north from the Everglades, the panther will have no path to recovery. The clock is ticking as 1000 people move to Florida each day, and 5 million acres of the Corridor are projected to be lost by 2070 if development continues on its current trajectory. Please connect with me @carltonward and share this story so we can help #KeepFLWild. #FloridaWildlifeCorridor  @fl_wildcorridor @insidenatgeo #everglades #expedition #FloridaWild #bobcat #corridor.

Photo by @CarltonWard | A bobcat triggers a camera trap in rare scrub habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge -- ancient sand dunes that form the spine of Central Florida, rising 300 feet above sea level as the highest natural feature in the peninsula, and hosting a variety of endangered and endemic plants -- a time capsule to 2 million years ago when the rest of Florida was covered by a shallow sea. While much of the historic vegetation has been replaced by roads, crops and housing, this section of the ridge is protected by Archbold Biological Station (@archboldstation ), which is a catalyst for research and conservation in the surrounding landscape. This outpost in the Northern Everglades is where we founded the Florida Wildlife Corridor project to communicate the vision for habitat protection needed to keep Florida wild. In 2012, with support from National Geographic, friends and I hiked, paddled and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing this last remaining wildlife corridor between the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) and the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). We crossed Archbold on day 35 of the journey.

Borrowed this photo from #floridawildlifecorridor of Juniper Springs. My father’s day was spent on the 7 mile canoe run down the spring. An amazing canoe trip and happy my girls were along for the adventure. Canoeing is always a true test of relationships and we came through with flying colors, no phones, no pictures, just enjoying a day in the woods on the water with my family!

Photo by @CarltonWard | Path of the Panther >>>> The reason I am focusing on the Florida panther for my current storytelling project with @NatGeo is that protecting the land needed for the wide-ranging panther will protect millions of acres of habitat for thousands of other species that depend on the panther’s domain. Not to mention saving Florida rangelands, timberlands, groves and the headwaters of the Everglades from development. As rancher Cary Lightsey told me, “the panther is going to have to help us save Florida.” A male panther has a home range of 200 square miles — four time larger than the city of Miami but approximately the same amount of wildlife habitat lost to development in Florida each year. This camera trap at Babcock Ranch shows a few of the species relying on the “Path of the Panther.” Swipe for 3 more photos following this adult male panther: white-tailed deer, Osceola turkey and raccoon, all captured on the same trail during a couple weeks in January.

Photo by @CarltonWard | A bobcat triggers a camera trap in rare scrub habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge -- ancient sand dunes that form the spine of Central Florida, rising 300 feet above sea level as the highest natural feature in the peninsula, and hosting a variety of endangered and endemic plants -- a time capsule to 2 million years ago when the rest of Florida was covered by a shallow sea. While much of the historic vegetation has been replaced by roads, crops and housing, this section of the ridge is protected by Archbold Biological Station (@archboldstation), which is a catalyst for research and conservation in the surrounding landscape. This outpost in the Northern Everglades is where we founded the Florida Wildlife Corridor project to communicate the vision for habitat protection needed to keep Florida wild. In 2012, with support from National Geographic, friends and I hiked, paddled and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing this last remaining wildlife corridor between the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) and the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). We crossed Archbold on day 35 of the journey.

While much of the historic vegetation has been replaced by roads, crops and housing, this section of the ridge is protected by Archbold Biological Station (@archboldstation), which is a catalyst for research and conservation in the surrounding landscape. This outpost in the Northern Everglades is where we founded the Florida Wildlife Corridor project to communicate the vision for habitat protection needed to keep Florida wild. In 2012, with support from National Geographic, friends and I hiked, paddled and biked 1,000+ miles in 100 consecutive days, tracing this last remaining wildlife corridor between the Everglades (southern tip of Florida) and the Okefenokee Swamp (southern Georgia). We crossed Archbold on day 35 of the journey. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is focused on the same Corridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther, because without protecting a wildlife corridor as a lifeline north from the Everglades, the panther will have no path to recovery. The clock is ticking as 1000 people move to Florida each day, and 5 million acres of the Corridor are projected to be lost by 2070 if development continues on its current trajectory.

Oh, the paths we find ourselves on in life, all the twists and turns, may we always find the light. 
Have been really busy, have tried to keep up and hope I haven't missed anyone. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! 🙋🌹💖
