The Forgotten Coast

The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida

 

Following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear, three friends leave civilization and enter a lost American wilderness on a rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle, and bike. Traversing Florida’s vast and seldom seen “Forgotten Coast,” the expedition encounters stunning and rare wildlife including black bears, manatees, alligators, ancient river fish, and endangered woodpeckers – all living within a fragile wildlife corridor stretching from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border. The Suncoast Emmy-Award winning documentary was also awarded the Exploration and Adventure award at the 2016 BLUE Ocean Film Festival.

Proponents say the dolphins, sea lion, seals and other animals are safely cared for and they highlight the need for conservation; opponents say the animals suffer from overwork and abuse.
