The Cabinet-Purcell Mountain Corridor (CPMC) serves as a critical transboundary link connecting wildlife populations in southeastern British Columbia with those in north Idaho and northwestern Montana. The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) has successfully brought together 60+ conservation organizations, land trusts, government agencies, and tribal groups to form a collaborative conservation framework for the CPMC region. Together, this Cabinet-Purcell Collaborative is responsible for securing and restoring vital habitat that allows wildlife to move freely between core areas, reducing human-wildlife conflict, and mitigating the impact of highways on wildlife. As part of this partnership, Y2Y has worked with conservation organizations and agencies to identify priority corridors for conservation and hotspots for wildlife vehicle collisions, restore forests, decommission roads, reconnect streams, fence attractants from bears and other animals, and purchase and restore private lands in critical grizzly bear corridors.
