Invisible Boundaries: Exploring Yellowstone’s Great Animal Migrations
This special exhibition focuses on the migrations of elk and other charismatic, wide-ranging wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. It explores the challenges these animals face as they leave Yellowstone National Park and cross into surrounding multiple-use and private lands in search of winter resources. Their journeys link the ecosystem’s outermost foothills and ranchlands to its deepest, mountain wilderness. The long-term conservation of Yellowstone’s migratory wildlife depends on the actions of landowners and other stakeholders far beyond national park borders. This exhibition features stunning photographs and video, interactive migration maps, cultural objects, and original artwork by James Prosek. Together they to convey the compelling story of animal migrations and cutting-edge conservation science in one of the world’s most renowned natural heritage sites.
Invisible Boundaries opens in the Center’s special exhibitions gallery on May 27, 2016 and remains on display at least through the end of 2016.
