A reduction in natural predators has undoubtedly contributed to locally abundant populations. If the population grows too much what will be affected? At high population densities, farmers can suffer economic damage by deer feeding on cash crops, especially in corn and orchards. It has become nearly impossible to grow some crops in some areas unless very burdensome deer-deterring measures are taken. Deer are excellent fence-jumpers, and their fear of motion and sounds meant to scare them away is soon
Mowat even experienced close up encounters and the wolves did not treat him like a foreigner. Mowat and his colleagues had the wrong idea about the wolves and this novel allows the reader to be able to see the truth.

Since this national park is located in a bit of the Northern Arctic and the Arctic Cordillera ecozones, a lot of the land is taken up hunting, fishing, trapping, and mining. This means it is important to maintain this park and keep it protected so it is not destroyed by human development. An example of ways this part maintains ecological integrity are having no camp fires. As explained in the previous paragraph, campfires will burn the limited supply of nutrients animals need to survive. Another example would be not feeding the animals and not littering.

"I have watched the face of many a newly wolfless mountain, and seen the south-facing slope wrinkle with a maze of new deer trails. I have seen every edible bush and seedling browsed, first to anaemic desuetude, and then to death" (Leopold 2). This quote from "Thinking Like a Moutain" supports the fact that author Aldo Leopold believes that an ecosystem is nothing without its plants and animals. Similarly, in the documentary Cold Warriors: Wolves vs. Buffalo, director Jeff Turner explains that wolves and buffalo in Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) work against each other to create a beautiful ecosystem, and healthy place for plants and animals to live. For this, and other reasons, Aldo Leopold would feel conflicted about what is happening in WBNP.
People went hunting not simply because they were in lack of food.

Once a group of wolves roamed Yellowstone park. They were almost killed off by human. Everything in Yellowstone went down hill without their pack. That is not compared to a herd of 15 tall fuzzy monsters running around in this barbie world.

There was a downside to Buck changing and evolving into the product of the wilderness. Buck suffered in the conditions : “His muscles had wasted away to knotty strings, the flesh pads had disappeared, so that each rib and every bone in his frame were outlined cleanly” (London 83).
