How Wolves Change Rivers

Why do we need wolves? Did you know that wolves play a key role in keeping ecosystems healthy? They improve habitat and increase populations of numerous species from birds of prey to pronghorn, and even trout. The carcasses of their prey also help to redistribute nutrients and provide food for other wildlife species, like grizzly bears. Watch this interesting YouTube video “How Wolves Change Rivers”

Wolves returning to Yellowstone National Park in the United States helped the ecosystem return to normal by doing what’s natural to them. What are we doing as human beings to help the ecosystem but also to help ourselves return to normal again? We do help in regulating the services of the ecosystem by planting more trees, maintaining a good habitat for a mixture of species and a home for a large amount of wildlife. The actions of humans have a great influence on the environment, we have a positive impact on the ecosystem but we’ve also had a negative impact. It is so important to continue the process of making everything balanced in the environment.

It is also very important to balance our physical and mental health. I know that physical exercise can reduce feelings of stress and depression and improve my mood.  I’m also aware that good nutrition and getting enough sleep can improve my mood and can also reduce anxiety and stress. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines: health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The month of October has been proclaimed Mental Health Awareness Month. The purpose is to educate the public about mental health but also to reduce the stigma and discrimination that people with mental illness are often subjected to.

While bringing more balance into your life, contribute to a healthy ecosystem, continue to strive to become both physically and mentally healthy and always reach out in love and care.

What an exciting post, Henrietta! Beautifully written and a great reminder of the regenerative power of Mother Nature. The video is stunning! I visited Yellowstone soon after wolves were reintroduced. I would like to see it again after it has returned to the state nature intended. The video helps me visualize it! ❤
