The complex social order of the wolf pack is as nurturing and caring an environment as one will find in the wild. An alpha male and female, or breeding pair, form the nucleus of this tight knit family. As with any potential relationship, first impressions will last a lifetime.
Few species have undergone the change in public perception, thanks to conservation and education efforts, like the wolf. Dan’s involvement with the Yellowstone Wolf Recovery Project in the mid-1990s, when wolves were first being reintroduced to the Park, reinvigorated his interest in this apex predator.
