Wildlife photography of a single coyote listens for prey in the Winter along the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park

A coyote stops to listen intently for prey as he travels through a Wintery landscape along the Lamar River in Northern Yellowstone National Park. Natural resource management in Yellowstone has changed much since the park was established in 1872. As a result of successfully linking science, management, and policy, Americans have become more aware of the myriad of ecological processes that create the Yellowstone ecosystem, and we can still experience scenes like this.
