Yellowstone National Park is made up of several kinds of habitats, lakes, canyons, rivers, and mountains. What makes Yellowstone National Park so exciting, however, is that it sits on top of the caldera of a volcano! Hundreds of species of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles live in this huge habitat, some of which are endangered or threatened. Grizzlies, wolves, and huge herds of bison and elk live in the park. Through magnificent photographs and easy text, children will learn about the volcanic nature of this super habitat, the story of how wolves were reintroduced here, and how a huge ecosystem can work when left undisturbed.
