The Human-Wolf Connection 

Join National Geographic photographer and storytelling fellow Ronan Donovan for a look at the complex relationship between humans and wolves through the wolf experience in two regions of North America – Yellowstone National Park and the Canadian High Arctic. 

Throughout history, wolves have been fellow hunters, members of the same family unit, and ultimately, a mirror to how modern humans treat the natural world.
