Collective impact in conservation for 2019 - Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative

Collective impact in conservation for 2019

Thinking big, together.

Since embarking on our big, bold mission in 1993, Y2Y is proud to have worked with more than 450 partners.

On the map that follows, you will find the conservation advances we’ve made together in 2019. You can find even more in the PDF version of our 2019 impact report.

Each project has an impact not only locally but regionally, and your support is an integral part of these successes. This collaborative work helps communities and wildlife thrive, advances conservation work, inspires advocacy and policy changes, and more.

Mapping our impact

In partnership with many groups including but not limited to non-governmental organizations, communities, Indigenous governments and entities, land trusts, biologists, ranchers and more collectively we have accomplished the following across the Yellowstone to Yukon region:

What we achieved together last year

Depending on timing, location and opportunity, our role in projects varies. Thanks to partnerships and our network of collaborators, we are able to work in coalitions, lead projects or provide support in the following ways on various projects:  

  • Deliver credible, accessible science and knowledge through creating, commissioning, synthesizing and communicating it; 
  • Strengthen partners and networks by providing capacity support that includes building relationships and solutions, funding, convening, and providing strategic support; 
  • Inspire and mobilize influencers, including individuals and communities, to take action on conservation issues, through sharing the Y2Y vision, organizing, advocating, and creating replicable models;  
  • Work in a targeted way across four scales: local, regional, national and global, addressing both bottom-up and top-down levers to advance conservation. 

You’re an important part of this work

No matter the nature or size of your role, thank you for being a part of our mission to connect and protect habitat so that people and nature thrive.
