The Ocala to Osceola Wildlife Corridor

The Ocala to Osceola (O2O) Wildlife Corridor is a 100-mile-long, 1.6-million-acre network of natural and rural lands anchored by two large national forests in north Florida. The O2O has long been recognized as a critical piece of the larger Florida Wildlife Corridor, a plan for a statewide network of lands and waters to support Florida’s wildlife and people. 

The North Florida Land Trust leads this project using a combination of land protection and land management incentives for private landowners to form a conservation corridor of public and private lands. The O2O will protect habitat for plants and wildlife such as the Florida black bear, gopher tortoise, Eastern indigo snake, red cockaded woodpecker, Sherman’s fox squirrel, and Bachman’s sparrow.  Conservation will help restore native forests and woodlands, protect drinking water resources and provide a buffer for Camp Blanding Joint Training Center.
