A classic, definitive view and celebration of the 125th anniversary of earth's most famous wildlife sanctuary and America's first conservation experiment.
Located in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, Yellowstone is the world's first national park�the birthplace of wilderness preservation.
Historical and contemporary footage captures a remarkable Yellowstone, a source of both legend and controversy. The eye of the camera captures the park's visual beauty, especially its geothermal wonders and exquisite collection of wildlife. The camera also reveals, however, that Yellowstone's wilderness is being threatened.
The film displays a dramatic illustration of park management over the last 125 years, focusing on major issues such as tourism, fires, grizzly bears, wolves, elk, bison and encroaching civilization.
In addition to stunning original footage by LDS cinematographer Brian Wilcox, the film makes extensive use of Official Park Photographer Jack Ellis Haynes' restored 1920's motion pictures, and the BYU Archive films of David de L. Condon, Chief Park Naturalist (1944 to 1959).
