Taking the Pulse of the Yellowstone to Yukon. Are protected areas enough to sustain wide-ranging species such as grizzly bears, wolves, caribou, and wolverines? Science says no. Luckily, there’s a solution, one that’s increasingly important with today’s changing climate and habitat fragmentation. Join Dr. Aerin Jacob, conservation scientist at Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) for an engaging discussion of large landscape conservation, an approach that protects core wildlife habitat and links them via critical corridors — one that also considers the social, cultural, and economic factors to allow both people and nature to thrive.
