Photo Puzzler: What does this image show?

This aerial image made by Carlton Ward during a LightHawk flight was part of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition.

This image reveals how plantation style agriculture disrupts natural forest growth and affects the viability of corridors for some species. LightHawk helped Carlton and his colleagues demonstrate the need to preserve corridors for animals to move around developed areas of Florida.

From their website: "Despite extensive fragmentation of the landscape in recent decades, a statewide network of connected natural areas is still possible (see the Maps Tab). The 2012 expedition laid the foundation with a robust media campaign to share the Corridor concept and vision."
