“Making the Case for Large Landscape Conservation”
Talk Summary: Given climate change and the decline of species globally, the world needs to shift to large landscape conservation. The Yellowstone to Yukon represents one of the first large landscape collaborative visions in the world, and other such movements are beginning to move forward as well. Achieving large landscape conservation requires protecting core areas and connecting them. To do so, requires community-based engagement and also enabling policy and management conditions. In the twenty years since the inception of the Y2Y vision, protected areas almost doubled, management designations on other lands also increased the conservation value, and the region went from few wildlife crossing structures to arguable the progressive wildlife crossing structures in the world compared to any other landscape. This talk will talk about Y2Y and other examples of how to protect wildlife movement and large landscapes for now and into the future.Learn more about Jodi here.
