Return To The Wild

Gray wolf Canis lupus

What happens when you reintroduce an apex predator back into its native eco-system? Ruth Hessey speaks with Dr Thomas Newsome about the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park and the incredible ways in which they helped to rebuild the damaged rivers and eco-system. As red foxes and feral cats plague Australia’s bushland, Newsome explains how the return of the dingo could be the key to saving our most endangered species from extinction.

Dr Thomas Newsome is anĀ Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Deakin University within the Centre for Integrative Ecology. Learn more about his research and upcoming appearances here.
