About the Series – It Takes a Village
Ever since the beginning of existence, humans have structured themselves as families, neighborhoods, communities, and societies. These social groups are not unique to humans. We observe them in flocks of birds, herds of elephants, bands of gorillas, packs of wolves. Wolves are amongst the most socially conscious animals on our planet, but have been misunderstood by humans for centuries. We are at an important time in history where we can take part in the interesting tale of this apex predator getting the chance to thrive once more. Their essential place in the ecosystem is now clear, and the wolf has become a bridge between humans and our understanding of the natural world. The wolf teaches us a vital lesson: Remove the foundation and all the parts cease to exist. Remove the parts and the foundation crumbles. It takes a village to thrive.
