Wolves change Rivers – Yellowstone National Park
Ecology is the branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings. Sometimes I read people’s comments on Forums saying to never give anyone advice about anything much, because you don’t know how you will affect the person you are trying to give advice to! You may make things worse.
Well, that is very funny to me, and not logical at all, because we are all Life Forms including Homo sapiens or human beings.
As such, in the 3-D world / reality, we are built or formed to interact with other Life and our natural environment. Nobody can stop the “march or the tide of Ecology” including Human Ecology ( yes there is a formal study called Human Ecology ). F.E.A.R. of False Evidence Appearing Real motivates some not to interact with others, for fear of upsetting them or making things worse.
But nobody is an Island and if you believe each human being has a brain and an awareness, and personality & Ego of their own, then you can know that each person is capable of and indeed responsible for how she / he responds to communications or actions toward her / him, or to anything !
Anyhow in 1995, as shown in the Video above, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, along with Canadian biologists, captured 14 wolves in Canada and placed them in Yellowstone National Park, where they had been extinct since 1926. Over the next few years, the number of wolves rose, but that was the least of the changes that took place in Yellowstone.
This is indeed an incidence of GOOD ECOLOGY, in this case human precipitated. Just because the wolves had become extinct in 1926 did the Scientists leave things as they were? No, I for one am glad they did not leave the status quo, but did their research and on the understanding how Ecology works, these 14 amazing Wolves were introduced to Yellowstone National Park.
