This midyear, 2017 Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC) newsletter exposes the truth about the intent of conservation initiatives to use transportation projects for overpasses for their connectivity goals.
Acknowledging the fact that the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is behind the global effort to "create a new protected area designation for wildlife corridors around the world. ", the CLLC is more than willing to comply. The new scam is now called, "conservation area designation – Areas of Connectivity Conservation (ACC) – that will
serve to link protected areas...", coming straight out of the IUCN.
CLLC Senior Conservationist, Rob Ament, will participate in this agenda by co-chairing the Transport Working Group
(TWG) "to develop global policy that addresses transportation infrastructure and development with regard to roads and rails within the ACCs." This effort will develop a coalition of individuals and NGOs by building resources to help them "...develop expertise in mitigating roads and rails for wildlife and connectivity." This means they are building their army, with the intent to force us into surrendering to their notion of conservation, using Tribes as part of their efforts.
The CLLC uses their "connectivity policy" to transform "local landscape protection in places identified by science
as critical linkage areas." Their influence over our government has also "...been driving policy creation and helping craft new legislative language at the federal, regional and state levels, as well as participate in a limited number of local, on-the-ground efforts. This includes activities such as commenting on and shaping federal land management plans- which ...included...National Forests. We are also focusing on state wildlife plans and state-based wildlife corridor legislation, county plans...", and "...influence federal administrative policies, state-based initiatives and provide wildlife corridor information for legislation across the country."
They openly admit to manipulating our government for their objectives.
Another CLLC project is advocating "for reducing the impacts that roads have on wildlife by working to secure
wildlife crossing structures...", specifically focusing on Hwy 20 at Targhee Pass. If they have been focusing on Targhee Pass, where has their name been disclosed? Does this mean all of their work has been in secret? Are they laundering their intentions behind other groups such as Yellowstone 2 Yukon, Henry's Fork Legacy Project, and perhaps even the Master Naturalists? Who are the front groups for the CLLC?
Bottom line, this newsletter openly exposes everything that has been published about these groups. The have full intention to use transportation projects for their corridor and connectivity objectives. If they are not stopped now, they will only advance those objectives until Island Park is taken over by them, placed into some form of conservation per their desire, and eventually controlling how Island Park is used. Do Not let that happen. Sign the petition and join others in stopping all efforts to put wildlife overpasses in Island Park and ending their conservation objectives.
