The Wolves Return

An insightful look about how one species impacts the rest. In 1995-1996, gray wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park. Their return significantly improved the ecosystem and landscape of the entire park region, which helped reign in several other animal species that had previously overproduced in the absence of predators. The trickle down effect benefited many, allowing many animal and plants species to re-emerge and thrive.

An amazing account of our world’s interconnectedness and an indirect way to discuss the impacts of climate change, species reduction, and extinction.
