As the wolves are going to be placed in the park with a relative habitat, they will eventually establish a community of the same species and as a result will spread their genes/DNA and build an ecosystem.
Reintroduction of the wolves in their new habitat continued....
Wolf #21 became the Alpha male of another pack and a legend to "walk watchers" because of his size2 and gentle spirit. Wolf #21 died in 2004. Unfortunally his pack of 37 didn't last interspecific competition.
Wolves are keystone species to the ecosystem because they help the flow of the food web.
Since the wolves are keystone species it cause a density dependent factor causing the population to become larger but less resources (food) making it interspecific competition.
The creation of the park didn't provide protection of the wolves or other predators.
Predator control programs helped eliminate gray wolf in Yellowstone.
The last wolves were killed in Yellowstone 1926.
Extinction of wolves increased number of Elk.
Coyotes survived the extermination programs without wolf competition.
