Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y)
02/26/21 Midnight MST
Grants to Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Yukon, Northwest Territories, British Columbia, and Alberta organizations, groups, associations, bands, tribes, networks, and partnerships to preserve ecosystem biodiversity within eligible regions. Priority will be given to joint or collaborative proposals from more than one organization working on the same project or initiative. Proposals must benefit the Yellowstone to Yukon region.
Recognizing the threat to biodiversity loss throughout the world, Y2Y is inspired by a vision of an interconnected system of wildlands and waters stretching from Yellowstone to Yukon, harmonizing the needs of people with those of nature. Y2Y’s mission is to connect and protect Rocky Mountain habitat from the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to the mountains of northern Yukon so that people and nature can thrive. This vision is guided by conservation strategies that marry leading-edge research with on-the-ground action. Y2Y carries out its work collaboratively with partners across the region, including environmental non-government organizations (ENGOs), government agencies, First Nations/Native American tribes, researchers, foundations, and businesses.
Y2Y uses its conservation strategies to identify Priority Areas - places within the Yellowstone to Yukon region that are either core wildlife habitat areas or large-scale corridors connecting core areas. Y2Y examines threats, opportunities, and capacities in these Priority Areas to determine where to focus efforts.
Priority will be given to projects that most contribute to the Y2Y Vision:
