What happened when wolves were reintroduced to a habitat – from ‘Sustainable Human’

When we were working towards the Green Flag for Biodiversity we learned what would happen if snow leopards became extinct. What would happen if the snow leopard was removed from a food chain. The results would be devastating for an ecosystem. You can read about that HERE

Happily this next video (from Sustainable Human) is a good news story. In 1995, fourteen wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the USA. The wolves had been extinct there since 1926. Watch what happened next. We think it’s amazing!
