Wolves have been reintroduced to Yellowstone park in America. It was a controversial move. Not everyone wanted them. As it turns out the return of the wolves triggered some trophic cascades. Trophic cascade is a process that starts at the top of the food chain and reaches down the way.
Wolves hunted the deer. That simple fact started an important and beneficial chain reaction.

Does the Yellowstone National park success suggest we should look to return wolves elsewhere? Such as back to Scotland?
