When did they Reintroduce Wolves to Yellowstone?

Wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone on January 12, 1995. This reintroduction initiated one of the most prosperous wildlife reintroduction programs in the United States.

Wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in 1995, and by 2017, they were deemed satisfactorily recovered to have been delisted from the Endangered Species Act in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming.

Further, the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park has been highly effective in numerous aspects. The population is growing, and equilibrium has been restored in many areas of the park. The decline in the elk population has resulted in a rise in flora and aesthetically pleasing surroundings. Beaver populations have also increased, along with other animal populations.
