Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative would not even have been on our radar, but for their connections to two radical groups, Wildsight and Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition.
The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is run by an American – Dr. Jodi Hilty and is technically speaking based out of Canmore, Alberta, Canada even though she is from the USA.
Since 1993, more than 450 partner groups have joined forces to support the shared mission and vision. Y2Y’s work is a collaborative effort of conservation groups, government agencies, Indigenous governments, landowners, wildlife scientists, planners, businesses, economists, and other individuals and groups interested in protecting native wildlife, ecological processes, and wilderness in the Rocky Mountains of North America.
The BC NDP Government has posted on its website an abstract written by Peter Aengst and American who is the Senior Regional Director, Northern Rockies Region for the Wilderness Society also out of Bozeman, MT USA.
Its almost a case of who is kissing who’s, it sure not a Canadian project.

Here is where it gets sketchy, the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is funded by The Woodcock Foundation, based in New York, USA.
