Yellowstone National Park’s two million acres of wilderness have many stories to tell, from the original native peoples who lived on the land to the epic supervolcano that powers the park’s iconic geysers. But Yellowstone is also a case study in wildlife conservation, from bison to wolves. Now, join Doug Smith on a behind-the-scenes look at the ecosystem and his decades-long quest to reintroduce wolves to the world’s first national park. Return to the wild and witness the beauty, wonder, and science behind America’s greatest wilderness.


National Geographic Explorer and wildlife biologist Doug Smith worked at Yellowstone National Park for nearly three decades. He was hired in the 1990s to reintroduce the wolves into America’s first national park. Unsure of the outcome, Smith and his team hoped for the best and watched as balance in the ecosystem was restored. This success led him to spearhead the Yellowstone Wolf Project, one of the most prominent wolf research programs in the world.

The National Geographic speaker series is made possible by our wonderful sponsors. Lead sponsors include Hadley Exhibits and P&A Group.
