Walking The Big Wild: From Yellowstone To Yukon On The Grizzly Bear Trail

( 1 )

Overview

Wildlife in North America is under pressure, both from hunters and poachers and from habitat loss. Bears and other large animals naturally wander across an enormous range but increasingly they are safe only in isolated, protected parks that are hemmed in by human development and the imprisoned bears are in danger of becoming inbred. If only the islands of safety could be connected by corridors of preserved habitat to allow free movement by animals like bears, then an enormous ...

Overview

Wildlife in North America is under pressure, both from hunters and poachers and from habitat loss. Bears and other large animals naturally wander across an enormous range but increasingly they are safe only in isolated, protected parks that are hemmed in by human development and the imprisoned bears are in danger of becoming inbred. If only the islands of safety could be connected by corridors of preserved habitat to allow free movement by animals like bears, then an enormous problem in conservation would be solved.
Karsten Heuer’s journey was intended to show that such a system of parks and corridors is feasible. He set out in June 1998 from Yellowstone Park, Wyoming, on the beginning of a 3,400 kilometre hike that would end, 18 months later, in Watson Lake, Yukon Territory. Along the way, he faced personal problems, including the breakup of his relationship with the woman who had planned the journey with him. He came to terms with difficult public relations problems when he spoke to loggers and others with a stake in the economic exploitation of wild lands. And, above all, he overcame extraordinary physical challenges: ferocious storms, avalanches, apparently impassable rivers in full flood, and bears that mistook him for dinner.
Accompanied by occasional human companions and a remarkable border collie named Webster, Heuer demonstrated that there is nearly continuous wilderness up and down the length of the Rocky Mountains, much of it still occupied by bears, all of it still salvageable if the right decisions are made soon.

Author Biography: Karsten Heuer took a leave of absence from his jobs as a park warden and contract wildlife biologist in Banff National Park to undertake the Y2Y hike. Winters he works as an independent biologist studying the movements of wolves, lynx, and cougars in the Rockies.

    Fantastic Journey

    Captivating tale about a very important journey and cause. I was drawn into this adventure and leanred so much about the natural world. The Y2Y initiative was new to me and I am now a strong supporter. The tale of Y2Y is important, but the story is so compelling that you must press on. It is a great nonfiction adventure tale.
