Building off of Leopold’s work -- and, later, Barry Lopez -- the Dutchers were among a small group of people who were able to change that, transforming many people’s conception of the nature of wolves and revealing the intelligence and social complexity
So I was delighted to learn of the release of the Dutchers’ newest book The Hidden Life of Wolves. Not only does The Hidden Lives of Wolves feature the Dutchers’ stunning images but it also discusses the practices of ranchers that are already successfully coexisting with wolves. NRDC also promotes coexistence, and the policies that allow ranchers practice it. Our new film Wild Things shows how these practices can work, saving the lives not just of wolves, but coyotes, mountain lions, and bears.
