The graphic below has since been removed from the Y2Y site.
When it was removed is unclear. However, this graphic is significant because it states, "The High Divide is one of the most important linkage areas in the Yellowstone to Yukon region...connecting...protected wildlife habitat...". The scientific definition for linkage is "Connective land intended to promote movement of multiple focal species or propagation of ecosystem processes." As seen by the graphic below, wildlife overpasses can be used as "stepping stones" for connectivity, but even better, a corridor really blankets the land and includes every aspect.
Y2Y is using the High Divide to complete their connectivity agenda. Wildlife overpasses are just a "stepping stone" to accomplish that agenda.
