Re-Introducing the Gray Wolf
The domesticated dogs happen to be a love for many who keep them in their homes but this is not the case for their colleagues in the wild. Generally speaking, wolves and the lot in their family in the wild, jackals, dingoes, foxes and the rest, have quite survived and endured lots of mistreatment, in fact persecutions at the hands of the members of the human family. The following is a look at some of the threats that actually do face the Gray Wolf that we need to be looking out for so as to save this friend from the wild the imminent threat of extinction.
Lest we forget, it is important to note the fact that there are actually some sure benefits that do follow the reintroduction of wolves into the ecosystem. Take a case in hand such as when there was a reintroduction of the grey wolf in Greater Yellowstone ecosystem back in the year 1995. This makes for such a great case in hand for as at the time, the park had just a single beaver colony but after the reintroduction of the wolves in the ecosystem, there has been witnessed an increase in the numbers of the beaver colonies in the whole park which has been nothing short of remarkable. By far and large, these are ideally the very noble missions and ideologies, the push factor and the drive behind the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project, Colorado that is basically a mission to help with the reestablishing of the wolf population there was in the Colorado rocky mountains. Check out the following now for an idea on some of the threats that happen to be facing the wolf population there may be left as of the day amidst us.
Talking of the threats to wolves in their population as of the present day and from days of old, the one of these has been the threat posed these friends from the wild by humans. As a matter of fact, there was one point in time when humans were so actively engaged in eliminating these animals from the wild that nearly brought them to extinction were it not for some last gasp efforts in an unprecedented breeding program that proved to save them altogether from being wiped off the face of the earth. What’s sad is the fact that even to the present day, the efforts to restore them back to their natural habitats are still being met with a lot of challenges and hurdles.
Over and above these, there has as well been the least when it comes to political will to have the lobo restored to its natural habitat and restored in the ecosystem which has as well been a sure bottleneck or dead end when it comes to the concerted efforts so far made towards the restoration and reestablishment of the gray wolf.
