Conservation science with Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y)
I worked as a conservation scientist at the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) from 2017-22.
The Y2Y mission is "to connect and protect habitat from Yellowstone to Yukon so that people and nature can thrive". Y2Y collaborates with many researchers, practitioners, and communicators, and >450 partner groups across the 1.36 million sqkm Yellowstone to Yukon region.
Our research included studying biodiversity and ecosystem services, protected areas expansion, supporting Indigenous-led conservation, the ecology and conservation of species at risk (e.g., wolverine, mountain caribou), outdoor recreation, and the human dimensions of conservation.
More about Y2Y via their newsletters, action alerts, or on social media. Taking action really helps!
