Eyes on Yellowstone, an education and research program, continues Canon U.S.A.'s partnership with the Yellowstone Park Foundation, which began in 1995.
Funding for the Yellowstone Park Foundation assists with important scientific research and breaks new ground in conservation, endangered species protection and the application of cutting-edge science and technology that is essential to managing Yellowstone National Park wildlife and ecosystems. The latest science indicates that climate change has the potential to dramatically influence Yellowstone's ecology and impact the future of the Park's wildlife. Canon's Eyes on Yellowstone is designed as a platform to help Park employees and partners respond to these issues through mitigation, adaptation and effectively communicating about climate change to the public.
Tom Cawley, Yellowstone National Park's Web specialist, worked on two programs funded by Canon's partnership with the Yellowstone Park Foundation including old faithful geyser live!, a streaming webcam, and online roving rangers, a series of education web videos and podcasts. The Yellowstone Wolf Project uses Canon digital cameras in its aerial radio-tracking flights within Yellowstone National Park as a method to enhance its data collection. Canon technology, used for education, increases access to the wonder and magic of one of the most recognizable and popular parks in the world, and helps raise awareness about the importance of the environmental stewardship and conservation. Another important initiative is the Greater Yellowstone Science Learning Center, a website where science and education come together to help preserve and protect this area of national significance.
