Here is a preview of the film, below is a synopsis: vimeo.com/139721867 Following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear, three friends leave civilization and become immersed in a vast and unexplored wildlife corridor stretching from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border. The rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle, and bike traverses Florida’s Forgotten Coast – a wilderness that has the potential to change the way we see the natural world. All of our organizations seek to get members of our community into the outdoors and learn to love and protect it. We think this film will highlight the importance of keeping our natural places interconnected, while giving people a chance to see what we have left to protect and enjoy.
