There are lots of incredible animals that live on this planet alongside human beings, and they are all part of a balanced ecosystem. All of us together are an integral part of the ecosystem we live in. When there is one tiny mishap in this system, or one element is removed, everyone is affected. Take, for example, the incident in the video featured below!
Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming was in distress after being excessively grazed by a vast number of deer. Many years ago, some people felt the wolves were a nuisance and removed them from the area. This caused an imbalance in the delicate ecosystem, and the deer population exploded because of a lack of predators. It sounds harsh, but it is all part of the circle of life.
The excess population of deer were causing numerous problems because of their overgrazing of certain areas. This lead to erosion, and a lack of smaller wildlife who didn’t have enough to eat as a result of the deer eating all the grass. Doesn’t seem possible, does it? Well, that’s how many deer were in Yellowstone.
To curb the problem of an excess of deer, wolves were reintroduced into the area for the first time in 70 years. This soon had a very positive effect on the surrounding environment. 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. But the biggest impact the wolves probably had was on the rivers.
