The self-governing assessment, written by WCS Senior Conservation Scientist Dr. John Weaver, is a collection and mixture of the latest information on these species and how climate alter may affect them from 30 biologists in the region and from nearly 300 methodical papers. In addition, Weaver spent four months hiking and riding horseback through these distant roadless areas to evaluate their importance for conservation.

The Crown of the Continent is a trans-border bionetwork of dramatic landscapes, pristine water sources, and varied wildlife that stretch more than 250 miles along the Rocky Mountains from Glacier National Park-Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana north to the Canadian Rockies.

Since 1910 when Glacier National Park was established, citizens and government representatives have worked hard to keep the core wildlands and wildlife in this region.

"These prophet leaders left a great gift and remarkable legacy," said Dr. Weaver, "But new data and up-and-coming threats like climate change point to it may not have been sufficient. There is a rare chance now to total the legacy of conservation for present and prospect generations".........
