Y2Y Supporter: Heidi Nitze
By Heidi Nitze, Y2Y Supporter
My love of nature began when I was young. I think that’s part of the reason it’s so powerful. Long Island, NY was full of farms and woods then, with old properties covered in meadows and trees. Every day my little brother and I walked the paths, with all the wonderful insect sounds and fragrant grasses.
Over the decades the properties were sold and developed, and we lost our paradise. The experience makes me eager to help save the wild places that are left. I see the great wedge of land from the Yukon down to Yellowstone as a paradise not yet lost, and I want to help conserve it.
I hope to visit the Yellowstone to Yukon region very soon. I deeply value what it brings to the world. Knowing that wildlife has a safe place to live and that there will continue to be wild woods and pristine waters brings me great joy.
I believe all nature’s creatures should have the same rights of security and privacy as humans, and by supporting Y2Y I’m helping ensure that those rights are protected.
