Laura Bruno – How Wolves Change Rivers – 16 February 2014

laura-of-the-rocksThanks to Mary and Mitch, who both sent me this video at approximately the same time. Nature lovers will enjoy the gorgeous scenery at Yellowstone, and I love the underlying message of how one small group can make a powerful difference when aligned with Nature.

On a not unrelated note: if you feel so led, please join me in sending extra love and support to the Nature Spirits and Elementals at Yellowstone, as they fight for victory over some recent unnatural challenges with unfathomable ripple effects. The land and its beings are strong, but they can use and appreciate our positive and healing energy. Those who know Reiki, please consider sending the Mental Emotional Balance symbol to Yellowstone, as that mitigates all sorts of imbalances. Much gratitude.

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable “trophic cascade” occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.
