Sadly, many Americans believe that losing the wolves would not be a bad thing for the prey’s sake, but in all reality losing the wolves would be devastating. One major thing that is present in all ecosystems, the place in which animals live, is a trophic cascade. A trophic cascade is explained in the essay as a “sequence of impacts down the food chain” (578). Hannibal gives the reader this example: “…In Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park … wolves were virtually wiped out in the 1920’s and reintroduced in the ‘90s. Since the wolves have come back, scientists have noted an unexpected improvement in many of the park’s degraded stream areas”
On page 3 of the article they say that if hunting were to be abolished animals such as deer will become a problem because of overpopulation. This means that deer could create problems for farmland as they could eat and stomp on the crops. Hunting is what keeps the deer population from growing too large since the population of the deer’s natural predators are too small to keep the population of the deer stabilize. Deer are not the only animals that are stopped from creating problems with the ecosystem. Animals such as warthogs and the Springboks are also hunted to stop problems such as destruction of

This is meaningful to WBNP because so much pollution could come from the plant and affect the ecosystem. This is important because Leopold would dislike this event.
