A Conservation Classic: How Wolves Change Rivers

This story has been around for many years, but it’s still just as good.

I find myself repeating an abridged version quite often when I make the case for predator reintroduction to Scotland (or at least a higher rate of deer culling!). So I thought I would post it here for anyone that hasn’t seen it.


P.S. It’s worth noting that more recently there’s been a bit of debate. But overall, the process still stands, there’s just discussion on the relative influence of beavers, wolves, bears and so on.
