Return of the Wolves - 20 Years Later

Wolf in Lamar Valley
by Yellowstone NPS on Flickr.
This morning on the Yellowstone National Park Facebook page there was a gallery of photographs about the re-introduction of wolves to the park. It was twenty years ago today that the first wolves were re-introduced to the park. That gallery reminded me of the PBS documentary Return of the Wolves which is about the re-introduction of wolves. I have embedded the video below. (Viewers outside of the U.S. might not be able to see the embedded video).


Applications for Education
In the past I have used part of this documentary in a U.S. Civics lesson about states' rights v. federal powers. The lesson coincided nicely with a colleague's lesson about biodiversity.
