Forest Was Dying And There Was No Hope Left, Until A Pack Of Wolves Walked In

Wolves went missing from the Yellowstone National Park in 1926. For the next 70 years, the forest reserves in the park began inching toward a slow and painful death.

The rivers had stopped flowing, the vegetation was gone and the population of several crucial species were dwindling or extinct altogether.

A research team accurately summarized that the missing wolves were the linchpin for this terrifying forest catastrophe.

Wolves keep the population of herbivores like elk and deer in check, which in turn prevents the over-exploitation of the forest’s natural resources.

Without wolves, the park ecosystem had clearly malfunctioned.

In 1995, the park authorities introduced a pack of wolves into the desolate wasteland. And like magic, within a period of 6 years the forest began thriving once again!

The rivers returned to the forest and restored the diminished flora and fauna of the region.

Gradually, the soil erosion stopped and the area also began supporting commercial plant life like aspen, willow and cotton wool!

From aquatic life to scavengers, all forms of life are back into the forest, making it a self-sustaining ecosystem!

We had goosebumps as we watched a barren dump transforming into an abundant forest in this enlightening video.

Nature is full of miracles and wolves are certainly a part of it!
