@paulnicklen for @natgeo. Wolf pups exit their den to sniff the spring air in Canada’s Yukon Territory. There has been much pressure by gold mining companies to enter this fragile and pure Peel River ecosystem to extract its minerals causing much damage to the landscape and wildlife populations. The recent decision to preserve it extends the tenuous protection of one of the last vast expanses of unbroken wilderness. #follow #me on @paulnicklen to learn more about wolves. #protecthepeel #ilovenature #yukonterritory #yukon #naturelover #wolf #family
