Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y)

Description: Mission: People working together to maintain and restore the unique natural heritage of the Yellowstone to Yukon region. Vision: Combining science and stewardship, we seek to ensure that the world-renowned wilderness, wildlife, native plants and natural processes of the Yellowstone to Yukon region continue to function as an interconnected web of life, capable of supporting all of its natural and human communities, for now and for future generations. At its heart, the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is about people working together. The Y2Y organization serves an important role to catalyze and facilitate local conservation action by a myriad of partners. As a catalyst, we commission scientific research and synthesize the work of others to better envision the region's overall condition and conservation needs. Using the large-scale needs of grizzly bears, birds and fish, Y2Y establishes conservation priorities for the entire region and identifies critical areas with the greatest conservation need. By facilitating the exchange of ideas and research, as well as attracting international attention and funding to the region, Y2Y has been able to grow the capacity of other groups to achieve more than they could otherwise. We foster collaborations that coordinate the work of partners around agreed-upon conservation strategies that bring greater efficiency and effectiveness to regional efforts.
