How Wolves Change Rivers

This is a brilliant and very informative video.

I have long followed George Monbiot and was delighted to find that he is the narrator on this video. The film was shot by Sustainable Human, an organisation that I hadn’t come across before. But I will look more closely at their website.

It is not long but it is full of surprises.

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.

There you go!

  1. Hi Paul,

    Long time, no see!!

    This is a very interesting example of an intervention based on the importance of maintaining and developing a diverse range of species.

    You might be interested to know that an organization called The Rewild Group uses the same story of healthy ecosystems as an analogy for their “Organizational Rewinding” approach to developing healthy businesses:

    Best wishes,

    1. John, good to hear from you after what must be a few years. How the devil are you? That organization looks like one that I should follow up on and later on today I will do just that. All the best to you, Paul

      1. Good to see that you’re still going strong, too, Paul!
        I’m well enough thanks and hope you are too.
        Yes, The Rewild Group are interesting. I have a contact there who is interested in the approach to organizational innovation taken by my company, Neat Strategy.
        Take care and all the best,


      2. John, that’s interesting and good to hear back from you. I had forgotten the name of your company; I must look up the details. Same good wishes to you too!
