Kate Fitzpatrick: Yellowstone - Small Print
5" x 7" Digital reproduction (paper)
This illustration is based on the 1995 reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park. The wolves brought elk numbers down, which allowed aspen trees to flourish; this brought beavers back to streams to make dams. The dams created calm water for fish, fowl, and salamanders to live. Wildflowers blossomed and the songbird population increased. Yellowstone thrived.
