How Wolves Change Rivers



This is a visually beautiful and fascinating description, narrated by George Monbiot, of the trophic cascade effect caused by the re-introduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park - how the wolves changed the rivers and  landscape of the area by their presence.   Really cool.

  2. as we know, mi amiga, when a wolf howls it is echoing the cry of Nature. this is why sometimes the howl of the wolf is eeirie to some but to those who listen closely it is a penetrating call from Nature.

    gracias for sharing this wonderful and much needed educational narrative for some

  5. Proof that nature knows what it's doing. Wish we humans were all ecological engineers.
