A century ago, wolves were still common in the American West. By 1930, they had been wiped out in the lower 48 states. This video chronicles the reintroduction of three wolf packs, transported from Canada, to Yellowstone National Park.

The video primarily follows one pack of wolves - the "Druid's Peak" pack, named for the territory they claimed after release - for about two years after they were transported to Yellowstone. You'll see some of the wolves' first hunts, and how they pick out one target animal from the herd and coordinate to run it down - and you'll also see other hunts under different conditions, on powder and crusted snow and at night. You'll see how the pack defends its territory from other wolves, and how it reacts to scavengers trying to steal bits of its kills.

The video also shows how the pack's internal hierarchy works, with an alpha male and alpha female at the top, and new puppies being integrated at the bottom. Individuals that threaten the positions of the alphas are thrown out of the pack to become lone wolves - but the alphas themselves can also be replaced. One of the most interesting sequences covers how the pack tests a new male after their own alpha male is lost.

There is some footage of the people doing the filming and the research - but not too much. As in all the best wildlife videos, the focus is not on the humans, but on the wildlife. If you want to learn about wolves, you won't go wrong with this video.

Doug Smith has one of the best jobs in the world - he's the head of the Yellowstone wolf reintroduction project. He spends his time observing the various packs within Yellowstone, and conducting research about the ecology there. What a perfect job!
This film follows Doug as he watches the Druid Peak Pack, one of Yellowstone's most famous packs. He explains a lot about the pack in particular, and the wolf in general. There is fantastic footage of hunts, kills, social behavior, puppies, and interactions with other species. The wolf is a very complex social creature, and the National Geographic people have found a wonderful way to show it to us.
An educational and enjoyable film, I'd imagine anyone who owns it will watch it much more than once. I've seen it probably 10 times now, and each time it illicits a strong emotional response. Fabulous stuff.

First of all, this is NOT the IMAX video. This is a wonderful film about the initial reintroduction of several wolf packs into Yellowstone in 1995, and the joy and controversy surrounding it. There is terrific foootage of the famed Druid Peak Pack in particular, and great commentary by wolf biologist Doug Smith. I do not recommend the IMAX "Wolves" nearly as much for home viewing, since it was filmed specifically to be seen in a "surround" type theater, and on a television screen - even a big one - much is lost. THIS film, however, is marvelous, and should be seen by wolf advocates and opponents alike.

i knew what to expect before i bought this DVD. this DVD, and any others describing/showing wolf behavior should be a mandatory must watch for politicians, ranchers, and the cattlman's lobbists! wolves have been de-listed thanks to greed and ignorance! maybe watching and understanding wolves would help said groups to want to protect the wolf and help re-balance Nature.

I aggree with Laura in that this is not an Imax film. It is a wonderful program about the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone. I highly recommend it. It gave me a greater appreciation on wolves.
I also recommend the Imax program on Wolves. I didn't like the main feature as well but I loved the segment on the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone. I had seen it on PBS and I had to get it. I was quite pleased.
The other people doing the reviews [may have] evaluated the wrong program. I had to purchase a copy myself to make sure the programs were different. They are not the same. They were done by the same person at the same time though.

The main movie is a bit lacking in content and quite dated.
Just when i was going to take a break at what i thought might have been the halfway point, the main movie was over. I recommend it if you want to see a dry classic, but not if you're looking for information further than the various nature channels would provide.

***However, the added feature show was quite informative and well done, which redeemed the excitement that i originally had before viewing the main feature.

I absolutely love this story and encourage everyone who has a passion and love for the pristine outdoors and a desire to restore what humans have disrupted--to watch it...wolves are in constant peril around the world and deserve our respect and protection...watch this story--it's beautiful and will make you want to visit Yellowstone & learn about the harmonious balance wolves have brought back to the park...

I ordered this and had it shipped to my little brother for his birthday. He loved it, after seeing wolves in Yellowstone this summer he's been obsessed. This was perfect! I can't wait to go back home and watch it with him!
