TVGet up-close with the gray wolf of Yellowstone
On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of wolf reintroduction in Yellowstone, naturalist Casey Anderson goes ‘inside the pack' with a stunning profile of Yellowstone's apex predator, the gray wolf, at the height of its awesome power during the brutal grip of winter.
Casey's unique background raising wolves Teton and Madison and his balanced local perspective on the 15-year-old wild wolf reintroduction form the foundation of a full-fledged investigation — unpacking the unique physiological and behavioural characteristics of wolves, coyotes, and foxes. And, on a bigger scale, Casey surveys the myriad ways that wolves have altered the fabric of the entire Yellowstone ecosystem — prompting ecologists to redefine the fundamentals of predator conservation biology.
The hallmarks of the Expedition Wild series, jaw-dropping natural history, Casey's keen field observations, extreme backcountry adventure, and sensational breakouts are all on display for an unforgettable chronicle of one of North America's most charismatic and controversial species. Join Casey for an up-close, revelatory look at Yellowstone's wolves in Expedition Wild: Project Wolf.
