The Yellowstone to Yukon vision was born from a series of events that took place since the creation of the world's first national park - Yellowstone National Park in 1872. With the realization that our park systems alone cannot prevent the extinction of animals and as new scientific methods revealed the incredible need of wildlife to roam across extended landscapes, conservationists realized that we needed to think bigger. Harvey Locke first penned the words Yellowstone to Yukon in 1993, and the idea of connecting and protecting habitat within this geographical setting developed into a vision when scientists, conservationists and activists from both sides of the Canada-US border enthusiastically agreed upon the vision and acted on it. This is our story.
