Carlton Ward’s Florida Wildlife Corridor collection within National Geographic’s Great Nature Project.

To raise awareness for the Florida Wildlife Corridor, we’ve also created a custom group within the Great Nature Project. Check out the Florida Wildlife Corridor Group to learn how you can post your own photographs to help showcase Florida’s amazing biodiversity. Please visit FloridaWildlifeCorridor.org and study the corridor map. Then whenever you capture a photograph within the Florida Wildlife Corridor, upload it to the photo sharing site of your choice, Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr, or citizen scientist sites iNaturalist and ProjectNoah. Make sure to tag your photos #FloridaWildlifeCorridor and #GreatNature to that they will be published in the Great Nature Project collection.

You can also help National Geographic win a Guinness World Records® title for the Largest Online Photo Album of Animals adding the tag #animal to your wildlife shots. Read more about the Great Nature Project from Lauren Ward.
