Freedom to Roam

This visual conservation campaign documents the ambitious effort to preserve wildlife corridors that would link existing parks and public lands to ensure the survival of one of the world’s last intact mountain ecosystems: the Yellowstone to Yukon corridor, a 2,000-mile expanse in western North America along the spine of the Rockies.
