Wild Ways

Four-lane highways may be a necessity to our modern society, but they can be a death traps for millions of animals that try to cross them. Wildlife the world over need to roam for breeding, foraging, and to carry out their traditional migrations - but they are often blocked by ranches, farms, roads, and other human-made obstacles. While national parks and preserves offer some protection to wildlife, even the magnificent Serengeti and Yellowstone parks are too small to sustain healthy populations over generations.
But now comes new hope for wildlife through an approach called ""connectivity conservation."" Wild Ways reveals through stunning cinematography how some of the world's most beloved species - lions, bears, antelope and elephants - can be preserved by linking the world's wildlife refuges with tunnels, overpasses, and protected land corridors. From North America's Yellowstone to Yukon, to Southern Africa's elephant highways stretching across five nations, animals are on the move again in Wild Ways.

The case for not delisting Greater Yellowstone grizzlies
Review by Earthfoto on 07/17/20 review stating The case for not delisting Greater Yellowstone grizzlies
The timing for this documentary could not have been better. It corroborates the efforts of many scientists and the greater public interests no to delist grizzlies from the Endangered Species List in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Grizzlies are far from recovered in the lower 48 and there is plenty of suitable habitat for reintroduction, plus delisting would literally kill any potential for wildlife corridors linking this isolated population with the northern population. Once the states of MT, ID WY take control, politicians in those states have expreed a great desire to make this iconic wilderne species open to TROPHY HUNTING! This is a highly controversial iue out west. It is believed that this may also be a calculated effort to weaken the highly succeful Endangered Species Act. The methods used and numbers of bears in this population that FWS are estimating is now being criticized by many scientists as dubious at best. FWS refuses to provide the science or data to the public or for peer review by independent sources and is only allowing a 60 day comment period for the American public. This is curious. One of the contributors for this documentary is Dr. Michael Proctor of the Trans-Border Grizzly Project. If you go to their website you will find the name Chris Servheen as one of the U.S. science advisors. Mr. Servheen is the primary architect for the delisting of grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone EcosystemEURan effort he has been pursuing for over 20 years. I would call that a serious conflict of interest based on the meage of this program.
