What Do Wolves Need to Thrive

This week's investigative reporting, analysis and environmental news.
The Revelator

No. 36, July 12, 2018

Hello readers,

It's wolf week here at The Revelator, and we have two new articles you don't want to miss.

First up, we have an interview with biologist Carter Niemeyer, one of the people who helped return wolves to Yellowstone National Park. He shares his insight on what wolves need to thrive in the wild. (Hint: It isn't hatred or fear.)

Next up, environmental philosopher Michael P. Nelson — the official historian of the Isle Royale wolf-moose project — talks with us about the ethics of wolf conservation. It's a fascinating discussion that digs deep into our relationship with wolves and nature.

That's not all. In other news, we take a look at an endangered fish called the Rio Grande silvery minnow. With its namesake river facing serious drought this year, it's time to find out how climate change threatens this imperiled fish — and what people are doing to help.

Speaking of helpful people, we have an article about the hard-working volunteers trying to save drought-plagued horses on Arizona's Navajo Nation.

Finally this week, let's say our good-byes to former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, who finally got the boot last week. What does that mean for the future of the EPA?
