Timber wolves have a sordid history in Yellowstone National Park. In an effort to protect local livestock and elk populations, the wolves were extirpated from the park. The timber wolf was reintroduced to Yellowstone in the 1990’s from Canada. While formerly endangered, the wolves were able to build a stable population, and were delisted as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2008.
Occupying over 3400 square miles of northwestern Wyoming, Yellowstone features a variety of unique habitats that support a diverse assemblage of organisms. Yellowstone was designated and established as the first National Park in the world in 1872. Its attractions include the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful and Yellowstone Lake.
