Scientists Boggled At How Wolf Pack Managed To Change The Face Of A Dying Forest

Wildlife activists were very worried when they discovered that Yellowstone National Park was in a dying state.

The core of the problem was the overgrowth of the deer population, which consumed most of the park’s vegetation and left the ecosystem in a state of dire imbalance.

So, a pack of wolves was introduced to the park after a period of 70 years. The wolves kept the deer population in check, and within 6 years the place looked green and abundant again.

However, it was the significant changes after that which caught the attention of wildlife workers.

The place was booming into a hub for all sorts of animals, from birds and aquatic creatures to other terrestrial animals – the park’s resources were able to support a variety of life again!

The park officials also saw a rise in the commercial resources of the park in the form of aspen, willow and cotton wool.

Due to the increase in plant life, soil erosion lessened and the rivers also found their way back to the park!

Eventually, the presence of dead carcasses of animals invited the scavengers to keep the place clean. The park had blossomed into a solid, self-sustaining ecosystem again!

In the center of this mass ripple of change stands the wolf, mightily holding it all together. What magnificent creatures!
