Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative
A joint Canada-US charitable initiative, Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative connects and protects habitat along the mountain ecosystem from Yellowstone to Yukon. Their vision is to harmonize the needs of people with those of nature.
Established 25 years ago, the initiative has worked on many projects improving the human-wildlife connection along the west coast mountains. From projects that involved improving highway crossings for wildlife in Alberta to conserving specific wildlife populations, Y2Y takes a scientific and collaborative approach to conservation.

We’re pleased to donate $1,000 on behalf of Canadian Mattress Recycling to Y2Y.
