Take A Journey Through Florida’s Wildlife Corridor This Thursday

C Ward Photo

Travel to places you never knew existed in Florida and learn their predicted fate at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society’s “From Glades to Gulf: 1,000 Miles in 100 Days, a Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition” Conservation Leadership Lecture. Renowned photojournalist Carlton Ward, Jr. and conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt team up this Thursday, April 16 from 6-8PM as part of the Zoo’s popular lecture series.

Black Bear

In 2012, Ward and Dimmitt, along with bear biologist Joe Guthrie and filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus undertook the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition in which they covered 1000 miles in 100 days by hiking, biking and paddling their way through the Florida landscapes from the Everglades National Park toward Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia.

The Speakers

CW

Carlton Ward, Jr. is a conservation photographer and eighth-generation Floridian focused on Florida’s living heritage. His work is exhibited widely and published in magazines including Audubon, Smithsonian, Geo and Nature Conservancy. He began his career with seven expeditions to the Congo rainforests of Gabon with the Smithsonian Institution, resulting in his award-winning book, “The Edge of Africa,” with a foreword by Colin Powell presidential exhibit with the United Nations in New York. While remaining engaged internationally, Ward’s primary purpose is to protect Florida’s nature and culture through art. His 2009 book, “Florida Cowboys,” won a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards, and Popular Photography Magazine featured him for working to save vanishing America.

Mallory

Mallory Lykes Dimmitt is a seventh generation Floridian whose childhood was partly spent exploring the lands and waters of central Florida. She pursued her passion for the outdoors by receiving her B.S. in Natural Resources from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
