Yellowstone National Park or ecosystem

This is a video that I just came across recently but it’s actually from several years ago and it’s a perfect example of how I believe that in nature when you upset one piece of the pie, the rest of the pie is upset as well.

The story/video is entitled “How Wolves Change Rivers – video by GrrlScientistover at The Guardian. It’s really a quite amazing video and I must admit I learned a lot about how just the wolves in Yellowstone affect the whole park.

Dogs and wolves

As someone whose always loved wolves, this was a really cool article that came out last week about the discovery of an 18,000 year old puppy in Siberia that may help scientist truly connect the two.

The article is entitled “Mummified Pup Died in Siberia 18,000 Years Ago … And Might Be a Wolf (or Something Else)” by Mindy Weisberger over at LiveScience. At this point, scientist are unsure if this is a wolf, a dog or something else. I guess what can be said is stay tune to find out.

Wolves & our ecosystems

Reading this article tonight is just another example of how removing even one species from an ecosystem shows us that everyone plays a role here on earth. The article here is about one of my favorite animals, the wolf and one of my favorite parts of nature, our trees.

The article is entitled “After Killing all the Wolves in Yellowstone, They Finally Brought Them Back-Here’s What Happened Next” by Melissa Breyer over at Treehugger.

Danish wolves

I must admit, when I think of Denmark, wolves aren’t not something that come to mind. This article, entitled “After a 200-Year Absence, Wild Wolves Return to Denmark” by Jaymi Heimbuch at the Mother Nature Network, lets me know otherwise.

Okay, back to the great lakes region

So I came across this article a few days ago courtesy of the Duluth News Tribune and it’s a  sad story,in large part because of the reason for the decline. The article is entitled “National Park Service wants to bring new wolves to Isle Royale.

I’m happy though that the National Park Service wants to get involved. After all, like so many others animals, wolves are one of my favorites.

It takes two

Reading this article reminded me of another story I read about, the one in the book entitled A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans. While I never finished the book, in part because I know the ending, the story of coyotes overall, has a happier ending.

The article is entitled “The true story of a legendary coyote is coming to Hollywood: Two Toes, the original wiley coyote of the American West, is on the verge of howling on the silver screen at the Mother Nature Network by Michael d’Estries.

Signature howls

I’ve probably  talked about it before but, I remember when we use to go to our cabin up north in Minnesota and we could on occasion hear wolves howling. Little did I know at the time that wolves have individual voices.

This according to the article entitled “You Can Tell Where a Wolf Is by the ‘Shape’ of Its Howl” by over at Science of Us magazine.
