Scientists have been warning for decades that most protected areas, including the relatively large parks of the Canadian Rockies, are too small to preserve wide-ranging wildlife species over the long term. The solution, say conservationists, is to restore and maintain viable wildlife corridors that keep animals connected over vast ecosystems, and between large protected areas.
With striking footage and remarkable stories from the Yellowstone to Yukon region and Southern Africa, the documentary film Wild Ways: Corridors of Life explores the practical significance of large landscape conservation. From lions and elephants to elk and grizzlies, from the Canmore-based Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) connecting a 3,200km length of mountain ecosystems to the complex Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area spanning five countries in Southern Africa, “Wild Ways” reveals the challenges wildlife are facing and how the vision of protecting and connecting is our most promising solution.
The film will feature an introduction and post-screening Q&A with Y2Y co-founder and leading conservationist Harvey Locke. Y2Y, which was involved throughout the 6-year process of bringing Wild Ways to life, is a transnational conservation organization with a vision of an interconnected system of wild lands and waters stretching from Yellowstone to Yukon, harmonizing the needs of people with those of nature.
