Due to the large numbers of visitors in both
Yellowstone and East Africa, ways of controlling their impact in the ecosystems are very similar. In Yellowstone, vehicular traffic is limited to the roads; this is a practice adopted in the recent past in the Seregenti, and to a more limited extends in the Masai Mara. Off the road driving is not longer the rule in Africa. Another phenomenon is the concentration of people/vehicles where an unusual animal sight is found or where a kill have occurred.
The lions of
Yellowstone are the wolves and their cousins the coyotes. There are also bears as well as smaller ones as the badgers. The wolves were recently reintroduced in the park and their presence has attracted a loyal group of trackers that spent endless hours recording their behavior.
I had visited this park in all seasons except for the winter; I do not handle cold temperatures well. Spring is probably the most exciting because of all the new life as well as the flowers abundantly present. Of course, fall is also colorful because of the changes in foliage and the elks rutting season. Summer…it is for the tourists.
Yellowstone is the in the Premier Park ; there are animals, unusual landscapes to include geysers and waterfalls. A place of wonders. USA
