Ellen & special guest, podcaster and wildlife educator Danielle LaRock of National Park After Dark, review one of our world’s most misunderstood, maligned, and magical creatures: gray wolves. We’re not just talking teeth and claws and fluffy coats – we’re also discussing alliances with crows, howls that rattle your very soul, the irreplaceable ecological role of wolves, their conflicts with humans, and how we can all make peace with our wild neighbors.

This podcast is made with families in mind and contains no profanity or graphic language.
