As a science and outdoors writer, I’ve been working on a book on wildlife corridors for some time. A frequent visitor to Montana, I first became interested in the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (y2y.net), an ambitious effort to reestablish a northern Rocky Mountain wildlife migration corridor. With a little research, I found similar efforts across North America. Above, for example, I gaze across the Salmo-Priest Wilderness from the top of Salmo Mountain in northeast Washington State, part of the Columbia Highlands corridor linking the Rockies with the Cascades. My interests have since broadened to encompass many of the proposed corridors, which then led to starting a book.

Yet, as I continue to write about wildlife corridors, I find that completing such a book will take some time for exploration, research, and writing, while the completed chapters sit, without being available. And so, this website, which may eventually evolve into a traditionally published book.

I begin with the Colorado Plateau, Paseo Pantera (Path of the Panther), and Algonquin to Adirondacks. For each installment, an ebook of much longer text and complete references can be downloaded from amazon.com. Additional installments will be published as completed.

I hope you enjoy and find the corridor descriptions useful. Let me know what you think by leaving a reply below.
