11. Saw a really good documentary a few weeks ago.

They said that by removing wolves or other apex predators from an area it will have a uhge impact. Not just on the prey that they feed on but even the enviroment. They showed an area by a riverbed 20yrs ago that was washed out and eroded due to the small critters that the wolves prey on going buck wild and eating all the greens like lillies, cat tails etc actually hold a rivers course. By reitroducing the wolves within 5 years they showed the same river section and it had worked its way back to the way it was supposed to because there werent as many little critters eating the green stuff by the rivers edge. If I remember correctly the guy that made the documentary raised a bear from infancy because its mother was killed. He also has an animal habitat and is married to a pretty famous actress. I wish I could remember his name, it was a great doc.
