17 MILLION ACRES OF LAND
Florida’s Wildlife Corridor encompasses nearly 17 million acres, including almost 10 million acres of protected conservation lands. The unprotected lands link the protected areas where animals are free to roam.
7 MILLION ACRES ARE UNPROTECTED
These unprotected open lands link conservation areas to form a natural, continuous swath of lands and waters that wildlife travel to access different habitats for parts of their life cycle.
69 IMPERILED PLANT SPECIES
These “threatened” or “endangered” plants are paramount to the protection and well being of Florida’s ecosystem. The Scrub Plum, Everglades Bully and Scrub Ziziphus are among these at risk plant species.
131 IMPERILED ANIMAL SPECIES
Fragmenting the Corridor threatens the ability of wildlife to travel, restricts breeding opportunities. The list includes the Key Deer, Florida Manatee and Loggerhead Sea Turtle among many others.
