Overview

The dream is a connected ecosystem through North America's Wild Heartsee what thismeans and learn why it is important

  • 200 fullcolor scenes of a landscape and its wild inhabitants by an awardwinning photographer
  • Original essays by noted writers, biologists, and conservationists including David Suzuki, David Quammen, Rick Bass, Ted Kerasote, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
  • Illustrates the principlesand the viabilityof the Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) conservation initiative

A grizzly bear emerges, one small detail in an immense vista of field and mountains and sky. A shoreline, still and empty but for the telltale tracks of passing wildlife. Golden peaks that roll to the horizon, starkly beautiful in the morning light. This kind of space, of solitudeof simple wildnessstill exists in North America, outside the boundaries of any park. Photographer Florian Schulz documents the landscape, plants, animals, and people of an ecosystem that is surprisingly intact up and down the spine of the Rocky Mountains. There is still time to make a difference: to direct the path of encroaching development and establish connections between the national and provincial parks on this course. Essay contributors tell of their travels through the region and their experience of the land. They explain the need for Y2Y, based on new findings that reveal isolated nature sanctuaries to be a recipe for extinction. They set the Y2Y conservation program in context: a grand vision grounded on science; a practical plan that provides for economic as well as environmental sustainability; a blueprint designating critical wildlife habitat. Environmental conservation does not mean that humans must be excluded from the land, but we must act thoughtfully.
