Signs Of Panthers On The Trail

WFIT has been following the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition through the southern portion of the journey. Now the expedition is approaching Central Florida, and crossing through what crew member Carlton Ward Jr. calls, "An area of statewide and national concern."

Keeping the connection between South and North Florida is vital to the Florida panther, as these large carnivores need travel routes to find food and mates.

WUSF's Carson Cooper had the chance to catch up with Carlton Ward Jr. from Glades county, where the expedition team has been seeing signs that panthers are nearby.
