Find out more about an ambitious plan to create a wildlife corridor connecting North American national parks, in this video from NOVA: Wild Ways. Researcher Mike Proctor is on the front lines working to determine which places outside parks are important to protect for the passage of bears. The idea is called connectivity conservation, and the aspirational Yellowstone to Yukon Initiative seeks to connect core areas over a 2,000-mile stretch to allow passage for large mammals. This also means protection for a majority of other species. Partners in the project work with landowners and managers of public lands to ensure wildlife’s safe movement.
