How Wolves Help
Wolves play a very important role in the ecosystems in which they live. Since 1995, when wolves were reintroduced to the American West, research has shown that in many places they have helped revitalize and restore ecosystems.
Do We Need Wolves?
The article reports on efforts for wildlife preservation in U.S. and issues related to the same. Topics discussed include threat to maintenance of livestock from wolves, abolition of rule on federal wolf protection, under U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service(UFWS), by U.S. district court at several places of U.S. including Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan and a proposal by 114th Congress to pass a wildlife safety rule under implications of Endangered Species Act (ESA) and protection of herds.
Wolves in US Parks: An Overview
The reintroduction of wolves into the national parks of the United States is an issue that has sparked a strong debate. The predators, which were driven out of their natural habitats as the result of human expansion, have been bred and reintroduced into the wild in the country's national park system. While many proponents argue that such programs simply restore balance to the ecosystem from which the wolves were rejected decades prior, many others insist that the issue is not that simple.
Point/Counterpoint: Wolves Should Be Reintroduced onto Federal Lands to Help Balance Natural Ecosystems
The article presents an argument in favor of the reintroduction of wolves to U.S. national parks. It is the author's opinion that wolves are vital to area ecosystems due to their nature as top predators. The positive impact of wolf populations to sustainability in national parks through the decline of elk populations and the reemergence of plant species is examined. Particular focus is given to the effects of wolf reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park.
Point/Counterpoint: Wolf Reintroduction Negatively Impacts Humans & Existing Ecosystems.
The article presents an argument against the reintroduction of wolves to U.S. national parks. The author argues that such plans endanger park visitors, area residents, and businesses due to the risks connected with increased numbers of large predatory animals. Problems connected with the rapid growth of wolf populations following reintroduction are also discussed.
