In 1995 after a great deal of heated debate, a small pack of wolves was relocated from western Canada to Yellowstone. The
pack thrived and soon, scientist discovered, so did the park! It turned out that a cascade of events was unfolding starting with the herds of elk which had been roaming unchecked through the park. Now at risk of being hunted by the wolves, the elk were forced to change their grazing patterns. They moved out of the narrow stream and river valleys and into more open grazing land where there was less cover for the wolves. This in turn relieved the grazing pressure on the stream and river- banks and allowed native aspen and willow to grow back. Songbirds thrived and beavers returned to further transform and heal the landscape.
