Yellowstone to Yukon Conservationion



Dear Y2Y Friend,

For Y2Y, conservation is about the art of connection: connecting the large landscapes that make up the vast mountainous Yellowstone to Yukon region; and the person-to-person and country-to-country connections that lead to lasting success.

This past spring has been a time of powerful connections for Y2Y. We have new program staff in the US, we're expanding our conservation efforts to keep this landscape connected, and we're connecting with new audiences through art exhibits and grassroots interactions.

Our greatest opportunity for success comes from connecting the notion of Y2Y - a vast, interconnected Dwayne Hartycorridor, for wildlife and human communities and cultures - with the way individuals and organizations work together to conserve our heritage.

One way we've found that works is through art. Creativity and culture can be very effective tools for understanding the power of this extraordinary place. With the support of Y2Y, renowned wildlife artist Dwayne Harty took a 3-year journey the length and breadth of the Y2Y region in an effort to capture the beauty and vulnerability of this region.

The results were powerful and beautiful. You can sample Dwayne's artwork and hear stories from his wilderness travel in this three-and-a-half-minute video.

And we invite you to catch up on recent Y2Y news:

From the start, Y2Y has been about connections. Wild landscapes and creatures, people and cultures, and communities working together. We hope you are inspired to stay connected, with us and with the land and animals that we are privileged to be working for. As always, feel free to email me with your thoughts or questions.

Yours in conservation,
