Yellowstone In-Depth: Wolves
Cultural History, Natural History, Wildlife
The wolf, one of Yellowstone’s most important predators, roamed the landscape and influenced the ecosystem for thousands of years. By the late 1920s, wolves were eradicated from Yellowstone in an effort by the U.S. government to tame the wilderness. In 1995 wolves were relocated to Yellowstone National Park. The impacts of wolf recovery have been significant. With their return, Yellowstone’s large carnivore community is fully restored and wolves are once again playing a critical role in Yellowstone’s natural ecological processes. This two-day course will allow students to interact with a variety of stakeholders involved with and impacted by wolf management in and outside Yellowstone National Park.
A portion of the proceeds from this class will go towards supporting the Yellowstone Wolf Project.
