There are lots of incredible animals that live on this planet alongside human beings. All of us together are an integral part of the ecosystem. When there is one tiny mishap in this system, everyone is affected. The video below is a perfect example of an ecosystem that benefited from the reintroduction of a missing species.
The Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming was in distress after being excessively grazed by a vast number of deer. To curb this problem, wolves were reintroduced into the area for the first time in 70 years. This soon had a very positive effect on the surrounding environment and all of the creatures that lived in Yellowstone.
The population of the deer was controlled, which in turn allowed a growth in the vegetation. Thus, more creatures managed to find a habitat in the park. The wolves killed coyotes, which lead to a larger population of rabbits, foxes, and other smaller animals. More trees began to grow, as well as berries, so the bears had more to eat, as did the beavers.
The increase in beavers meant an increase in other river animals like ducks and otters. The beavers love the wolves. But the biggest impact the wolves probably had was on the rivers. With the deer further from the water, the banks of the rivers began to stabilize and actually made the rivers more stable.
