  1. A brilliant piece of video, and what a testiment as to why wolves do not deserve the bad image that they so wrongly have been given over the years. Long may Wolf Watch UK continue to educate and inform the public as to the value of this magnificent animal and the contribution it makes to our environment. Well done WWUK and keep up the good work!

  2. I think this is one of the most wonderful, uplifting videos I have ever seen. At a time when the planet is being raped and destroyed in the mindless pursuit of wealth it shows how a simple change can have such a dramatic, positive and beautiful effect. It should be required watching for all politicians and business people in the hope that they might be persuaded to step back from the brink.

  3. What an amazing video, educational and highlighting the criticality of wolves to the environment. If only there was the money to educate the masses via a television advert…

  4. Absolutely beautiful video. All the wildlife and nature is amazing. The wolves are gorgeous. You must be so proud of the work you do.. I cannot wait to visit.

  5. Fantastic video full of facts. When my wife and I were in Yellowstone in 1996 the ranger told our group that hundreds of years ago the Governers of Yellowstone decided to get rid of the wolves so the deer will increase and atttract more visitors, but in time the increase was too much, after eating most of the vegetation they were starving and desease was rife, with no wolves to take out the sick. So the information with this video I found amazing, as It shows the importance wildlife is to the planet doing the job nature intended for them
