* Karsten Heuer walks with North American mammals from Yellowstone to the Yukon (Y2Y) to document the animals that use this natural corridor and learn its importance

* Preserving the Y2Y corridor has become one of the most critical environmental issues of our day

* Winner of the Banff Book Award for Mountain Literature

* Grants will fund a multi-city author tour for lectures and presentations related to the Y2Y initiative
Walking the Big Wild is the story of Karsten Heuer's extraordinary 18-month journey of hiking, sking, and paddling across 2100 miles of mountains, forests, and rivers from Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming to the Canadian Yukon. Accompanied by occasional human companions and a remarkable border collie named Webster, Heuer encountered immense challenges: storms, avalanches, floods, and grizzlies. At the end of the journey, Heuer proved that there is nearly continuous wilderness that can support wildlife along the length of the Rockies-and is salvageable if the right decisions are made now.

About the Author:

KARSTEN HEUER is a wildlife biologist and park warden who has worked in Banff and Jasper national parks in the Rockies, in Inuvik in Canada's far north, in Slovakia and Poland, and in the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa. A recipient of the Wilburforce Foundation Conservation Leadership Award, he has spent much of the past decade following some of North America's most endangered wildlife on foot and skis. In 1998 and 1999 he walked and skied from Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming to Canada's Yukon Territory to highlight a proposal for a 1,900-miles-long system of wildlife corridors and core reserves (the Y2Y Conservation Initiative). He chronicles this adventure in Walking the Big Wild: From Yellowstone to Yukon on the Grizzly Bear's Trail. In 2003, he again set off on skis and foot with his wife, Leanne Allison, and over the course of five months, followed the Porcupine Caribou Herd from their Yukon winter range to their endangered Alaskan calving grounds and back. This is the subject of Being Caribou, both his book and the accompanying National Film Board of Canada documentary.
