    Description

    The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) is an innovative transboundary effort to protect biodiversity and facilitate climate adaptation by linking large protected core areas through compatible land uses on matrix lands. The Y2Y organization acts as the keeper of the Y2Y vision and implements two interconnected programs - Science and Action, and Vision and Awareness - to promote the landscape, political, public, and financial conditions necessary for wildlife connectivity. The Y2Y vision has inspired many others who are also undertaking programs, projects, and actions contributing to its realization. This paper provides examples of projects being undertaken by the Y2Y organization as well as those being implemented by others and includes a brief summary of successes to date.
