Nature- business as usual

Once upon a time, is how great stories begin.

I'll prove we're in this together, how wolves change a river

How wolves change rivers:  When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic (level of an organism, the position it occupies in a food chain) cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers?  George Monbiot explains in this short movie remix, this short is the matrix of nature, slow and steady, nothing is left out. 

"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe." - John Muir

A mental note:  There are "elk" pictured in this video when the narrator is referring to "deer." This is because the narrator is British and the British word for "elk" is "red deer" or "deer" for short.  This short is gonna make ya feel good all over.
