A bit of rewilding news from the USA. This article describes the effects of wolf reintroduction on the environment in Yellowstone. The article is definitely worth a read, especially if you enjoyed our Winter 14/15 edition of The Geographer on rewilding.

A bit of light relief for you on a Friday morning, this map via AmazingMaps on Twitter, shows you where the Proclaimers would have reached had they indeed walked 500 miles and then 500 more.
