Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) relies heavily upon foundations to fund their agenda, along with government grants and donations by individuals. One huge Y2Y donor is the Wilburforce Foundation, which hails Y2Y as the "...worldwide model for large landscape conservation." Below are some graphics of who Wilburforce gives their money to, what the money is for, and under which program serving the omnipotent Y2Y.
This first graphic shows that Future West is a recipient for $135,000 to "protect landscapes and build conservation capacity for the...". The end is cut off but the purpose is for the High Divide area that encompasses Salmon and Challis. Building capacity means getting as many people as possible to join their efforts, and provide " ‘back office’ training", which means teaching people how to sell their message and convince others to join the bandwagon. Future West even has the training for this. "Direct investment (small grants) in their operations..." is another way in which to spread the money around. Meddling in Island Park affairs is another Future West activity. When the Y2Y created Henry's Fork Legacy Project fell apart, Future West was there to champion it on. Don't be fooled, it is a front group for Y2Y, try and find who belongs to it.
The Greater Yellowstone Coalition is another recipient of this money, $150,000, again to be used in the High Divide for wildlife and habitat protection.
Below is the second graphic. Again in the High Divide area, a total of $110,000 was given to the Salmon Valley Stewardship from 2016-2018, for "general support". This group has many projects they work on which can be seen in their newsletters. It is probably by no coincidence that the Executive Director, Toni Ruth, "...was the High Divide Coordinator for Backcountry Hunters and Anglers". Backcountry Hunters and Anglers is a heavily engaged partner with Y2Y, all the way into Canada. Another backdoor Y2Y influence in local "community" organizations.
The last graphic reflects some of the other money sent to their program in Canada. All totaled, $11,906,633 dollars. That is just a small fraction of the amount of money being used against us by Y2Y. Regardless of how much money they have, they cannot defeat the strength and bonds of local citizens who have pride in the ares they live in, nor can they escape the law under which we are governed. Engage with your local and state representatives and let them know that these groups are not welcome in your backyard, or the questionable activities they promote with their money.
