Why Y2Y

The Himalayas, the Andes and the Alps are iconic mountain ecosystems with a long history of human occupation and cultivation. The cumulative effect of these practices over the millennia altered these mountain ecosystems and in many cases led to the extinction or endangerment of many of their large native mammals and other endemic species.

Here in North America, we have the opportunity to choose a different destiny.

Yellowstone to Yukon is many things. It is a geographic region. It is a vision. It is an organization. Above all it is the last remaining intact mountain ecosystem left in the world.

The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative aims to keep it that way.
