CANON'S DEDICATION TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION
At the heart of every product, every idea, and every initiative lies the thought, “how will this make the world a better place?” Canon U.S.A.’s deep belief in being socially responsible is what drives our passion and support for programs that support the environment as well as the local communities we’re a part of.
Eyes on Yellowstone
Since 1995, Eyes on Yellowstone, an education and research program, has been made possible through Canon U.S.A.’s proud sponsorship with Yellowstone Forever.
Canon’s sponsorship of Yellowstone Forever contributes to important scientific research and helps break new ground in conservation, endangered species protection, and the application of cutting-edge science and technology that is essential to managing Yellowstone National Park’s delicate ecosystems and wildlife.
Summer in the Park
Summer is the most popular time of year to visit Yellowstone. Upwards of 2 million people will pass through the park between June and August. Daily activities include boating, camping, fishing, guided trips, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, ranger-led programs, and wildlife watching. Wildflowers cover the mountains by mid-July, making for perfect photo opportunities. While some wet weather may roll through, temperatures stay around a comfortable 70°F (25°C) and occasionally 80°F (30°C) at lower elevations.
Observing the Sounds
The natural soundscape of Yellowstone Ecosystem delights visitors. Natural soundscapes are a resource and are protected by National Park Service policies. Many visitors come to national parks to enjoy serenity and solitude and expect to hear sounds of nature.
The Sounds of Yellowstone
The scientists who study Yellowstone work on creating a 100% immersive experience, even if you can’t visit the park. "Telemetry" refers to the wireless transmission of information, often via radio waves, from one location to another. These downloadable podcasts can be found on the National Park website and range from the sounds of the smallest members of the Yellowstone ecosystem, to encounters with some of the fiercest wildlife.

Sharing the Knowledge
Located in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, Yellowstone National Park was established by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872. Yellowstone is at the northeastern end of the Snake River Plain, a great U-shaped arc through the mountains that extends from Boise, Idaho some 400 miles to the west. The volcanism of Yellowstone is believed to be linked to the Snake River plain. The most famous geyser in the park, and perhaps the world, is Old Faithful. You can stream the geyser 24 hours a day through the Canon livestream.

Conservation begins at home

Toner cartridge recycling
In 1990, Canon launched a toner cartridge collection and return program, the first in the industry. It has allowed Canon to recycle Canon cartridges with cooperation from customers. But that’s not all. Canon’s development of recycling technologies helps to reduce our dependence on natural resources and helps to reduce waste.
