Parks and protected areas are essential for biodiversity but cannot conserve wildlife on their own. Successful large landscape conservation requires connecting core habitat via corridors to allow wide-ranging species such as grizzlies, caribou, and wolverines free movement. The Yellowstone to Yukon vision is one of the world’s best-known large landscape conservation initiatives. Join Y2Y’s conservation scientist Dr. Aerin Jacob on a trip across the 2,000 mile region to explore how grassroots efforts and collaboration scale up to connect and protect habitat so people and nature can thrive.
