The Full Corridor

The Florida Wildlife Corridor covers nearly 17.7 million acres of Florida. 9.6 million acres of the Corridor are existing conserved lands, or 54% of the Corridor. 8.1 million acres of the Corridor are considered as opportunity areas for future conservation, or 46% of the Corridor.

Corridor Opportunity Areas

The Corridor is composed of hundreds of parcels of protected land, from Flagler County’s 30 acre Bull Creek Campground, to the 1.5 million acre Everglades National Park. The roughly 10 million acres of Existing Conservation Area illustrated in dark green in the map above includes working lands protected with conservation easements. The light green extent highlights the approximate 8 million acres of unprotected lands that remain. These Corridor Opportunity Areas are high priority lands that connect and support the wild legacy of our parks, preserves, refuges.

State Protection Priorities

There are state and federal programs that identify high priority projects in the state of Florida – Florida Forever and Rural and Family Lands Protection Program. 1.8 million acres of proposed Florida Forever projects are in the Corridor, which accounts for 22% of Corridor opportunity areas. 163,000 acres of proposed Tier 1 Rural and Family Lands Protection Program (RFLPP) projects are in the Corridor. 86% of these 163,000 acres lie within the Corridor.

MAPPING RESOURCES

The Florida Ecological Greenways Network provides the scientific foundation for the geographic Florida Wildlife Corridor. This statewide database identifies and prioritizes a functionally connected statewide ecological network of public and private conservation lands. It is the primary data layer used to inform the Florida Forever, Rural and Family Lands Protection Program and other state, federal, and regional land acquisition programs regarding the most important ecological corridors and intact landscapes across the state for protection of Florida’s native wildlife, ecosystem services, and ecological resiliency.
