Don't know if there's a green carpet planned at this world premiere but it would be appropriate.

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, a non-profit organization working for Florida conservation, will debut the documentary The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida” on November 12 at 8:00 p.m. The screening takes place at Tampa Theatre, in association with WUSF Public Media.

 General admission tickets ($12.50) are available at Tampa Theatre's box office or online at tampatheatre.org A limited number of tickets to a pre-show reception ($125) are available for $125.

The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida chronicles a 70-day journey by the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition team, covering more than 1,000 miles across the state by hiking, biking and paddling.

“We are incredibly excited to share with the world the beauty and natural wonders we Floridians have here in our very own backyard," said FWCE executive director Mallory Lykes Dimmitt in a news release. "We hope you enjoy the story of our journey and the places it chronicles not only tonight, but for generations to come."

The Florida Wildlife Corridor is nearly 16 million acres of minimally developed land serving as a habitat for 42 species federally classified as endangered, and 176 others designated by state officials including the whooping crane, Florida panther, West Indian manatee, green and leatherback turtles and gulf sturgeon.
