Go behind the scenes in a remote region

From deep in the rugged mountains and roadless forest of the Cabinet-Purcell Mountain Corridor comes the story of elusive lynx, tiny toadlets, and the people working to protect them and their habitat.

From deep in the rugged mountains and roadless forest of the Cabinet-Purcell Mountain Corridor (CPMC) comes the story of elusive lynx, tiny toadlets, and the people working to protect them and their habitat.

There is no better way to tell the conservation story of such animals than from the remote places they live, captured in stunning footage. That is why Y2Y has teamed up with filmmaker Scott Rulander to journey deep into the backcountry, to study and capture on film some of the most elusive animals.

The goal is to shine a spotlight on the organizations, people, places and conservation needs of the CPMC.

The videos in the series, called Conservation Films of the Inland Northwest, will bring the important work being done here to a larger audience, providing a platform to tell the stories of the area — one of the lesser known regions in Yellowstone to Yukon.

The series will engage our network of partner organizations and supporters on a deeper level, in an attractive, new way.

“We want to show off the amazing conservation work that is happening in this key area of the Yellowstone to Yukon region,” says Lacy Robinson, Y2Y Cabinet-Purcell Coordinator. “The CPMC plays an important role in connectivity for wildlife, climate change mitigation and conservation.”

This transboundary area covers more than 43,750 square miles (113,312 km2) — about the size of the state of Louisiana — and makes up approximately nine per cent of the entire Yellowstone to Yukon region.

Extending south from Golden, British Columbia to Missoula, Montana, the corridor links critical wildlife habitat in the Purcell, Cabinet and Selkirk mountain ranges. It is home to elusive and charismatic animals such as wolverines, caribou, grizzly bears and more.

The headwaters of many important salmon and trout rivers also begin here, providing drinking and irrigation water for millions of people downstream.

The series is in production now, and will premiere in Sandoint, ID., on Dec. 6. Get your tickets for the screening, as well as an additional date in Missoula, now
