More Evidence of Intertwingularity: How the Wolves Changed the Rivers in Yellowstone

People who follow my writings know that I am absolutely fascinated by the amazing degree to which the various species on our planet are interdependent or, as I like to say with homage to Ted Nelson, intertwingled.

The latest example of this that I’ve encountered involves a story of what happened not only to the ecosystem but to the course of rivers after wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park in 1995. Watch this short (nine-minute) video that explains all of the ramifications we encountered when we brought back the wolves, who had been absent from the park for 70 years. The story is quite remarkable.
