As a science and outdoors writer and editor, I’ve been interested in wildlife corridors for some time. A frequent visitor to Montana, I first learned of 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 look across the Columbia Highlands linking the Rockies with the Cascades from the summit of Salmo Mountain in Washington state. My interests have since broadened to encompass these other 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 published book.
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 the corridor descriptions and find them useful. Let me know what you think by leaving a reply below.
A multitude of organizations and individuals are working to reestablish North America’s wildlife corridors. Their work gives us hope for the future.
