PERC’s Executive Director, Brian Yablonski, sits down with John Batchelor of The John Batchelor Show to discuss Yellowstone National Park’s great migration. Yellowstone National Park is home to the largest intact temperate-zone ecosystem. The wildlife within this ecosystem migrate across boundaries through both public and private land. With habitat loss being the greatest threat to the future of this wildlife, it is critically important that we find ways to ensure that private landowners are willing and able to tolerate this migration. In order to preserve it, we must find ways to turn wildlife from liabilities into assets for private landowners.
The delays and expense associated with an overly bureaucratic process pose real environmental costs.
We must take the time to separate facts from propaganda and listen to scientists and stakeholders to avoid prioritizing emotions over evidence.
Property rights play a critical role in protecting both people and the environment.
