Funding for Yellowstone Forever 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.
Canon's sponsorship with two of the programs funded by Yellowstone Forever include 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.
